Capital Grille’s cold weather recipes


If you’ve ever eaten at Capital Grille you know how delicious their food is. But who can afford to eat there all the time, right? So, why not make some of their foods at home? Here are some of the best Capital Grille recipes that you make at home.

For cold weather they’ve got  items like Butternut Squash and root vegetables. I loved the soup – it was extremely tasty without being heavy like some soups can be.

Capital was kind enough to share some recipes. See the Wagyu Roast and Root Vegetables below – perfect for cold winter days.

The Capital Grille Roasted Root Vegetables for when it is cold and dreary outside

Pot roast—Wagyu or otherwise—just wouldn’t be complete without a side dish of the season’s freshest root vegetables roasted to sweet perfection. We propose an orange duo of carrots and sweet potatoes, mixed with celery root, fresh herbs and a little garlic. A touch of honey and sugar adds a little sweetness, and some dried cranberries delight with a burst of flavor. You’d be wise to make plenty.
