I meant to post about this with current notes when Lori and I made this dish on December 30, 2009. But, I didn’t. Here is a VERY brief rendition:
I used regular bacon and now can’t remember what kind of wine. BUT, it was really good! I took notes and will hopefully post them at some point. But, the bottom line is that it is totally worth it to make this dish. And, better yet, do it with a friend!
My dear friend Lori and I had a blast. Then, our husbands joined us for a lovely meal that of course included a duplicate of the the bottle of wine that went into the stew. 🙂
For the original recipe and related and necessary information, see the Knopf (publisher of all books Julia) web page dedicated to this recipe:
Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon (Or, Beef bo bo bo, as the non-French speaking Lori and I call it.)
After seeing the very brief video called “jumpingonion” (click HERE to access) let me know if you think we should do a cooking show together. <grin>
