Portuguese Peasant Stewed Ribs

Every country has its own idea of comforting, heart-warming meals. And with the Winter that we’re experiencing here in Chicago, we couldn’t help to wonder what others are cooking around the globe to make the weather a little more bearable. That’s how we stumbled upon this awesome Portuguese recipe: Peasant Stewed Ribs. 

This is the type of recipe my mom would love, where you basically throw everything in a pot and let it cook on its own. It doesn’t require a lot of work, but the resulting flavor is everything you would expect from a “grandma meal.” It wraps you up like a blanket.

German printers were invited to arrange presses at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1470, and the librarian there selected books to be printed, mostly textbooks, for the scholars.
