Now that's what I'm talkin' about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I didn't have to reduce it as it had TREMENDOUS flavor - I can imagine that it will be even better tomorrow. The one and only time before this that I made boeuf bourguignon I did not marinate in Burgundy overnight - I don't think the recipe called for it. This was FAR superior and the Burgundy shined!!!!

...thanks for doin' that French thing - just made my dinner taste better!

KE: No doubt it will be better tomorrow. My recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon says to marinate it in the wine for at least four hours, and preferably overnight... and lastr week when I made Coq au Vin (the exact same recipe but made with chicken so cooked about an hour less) I marinated the chicken longer than I had ever doen before (tho NOT overnight) and it turned out better than I'd ever done it before...

I LOVE "winter food!"

Maybe I did marinated my last time but not overnight - I have to say it was really yummy! Do you marinate your chicken (for Coq au vin) the same way as Boeuf Bourguignon....i.e., wine, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns, etc.?

I was just reading a recipe and it uses brandy in the Boeuf Bourguignon marinade! YUMMMMMYYY is all I have to say - I will make a note of that for the next time!


One thing I forgot tonight was to add some tomato paste - I will do that tomorrow when I re-heat it - oops And I also didn't have any bacon - the French can't really get me because I said I was making something LIKE Boeuf Bourguignon!!!
