This spicy stew is of Korean origin, and if there's anything to love about Korean meals, it is how they are so comforting. Budae Jjigae is filled with starkly different ingredients like sausage, kimchi, and cheese (and sometimes macaroni!). Yet, it remains authentic and exceptionally delicious.
This French onion soup is an addictive mix of sweet and savory. You can enjoy the warm soup, topped with cheese, or as a dipping for ramekins and garlic bread.
Shepherd's pie can be made with a ground lamb or beef filling and topped with mashed potatoes.

However, make sure you assemble the ingredients right before baking.
This soup is decadent thanks to a delicious mix of chicken, butter, garlic, mushrooms, and cream. For a luxurious meal, pair the soup with your favorite pasta and a glass of wine.
