Help me rescue beef daube

sljones | Aug 5, 2007 12:51 PM

Blasting heat aside, I made a beef daube this AM with meat from my butcher friend, in an effort to prepare and freeze some meals before the birth of my first baby.

I looked at several recipes but went with Cooks Illustrated (which differed in key ways from the others...subject of another post.)

The meat is cooked well, the sauce is thickened nicely, in general it came out great EXCEPT...it has a too strong taste of orange! CI called for 4 3 inch strips of citrus cut into thin strips, which I believe I followed. Each bite now tastes strongly of orange.

Can this be improved, or do I have to just toss this up as a valuable lesson for the first time I made this dish??

Thanks in advance!
