Results of Thomas Keller Boeuf Bourguignon

Nancy | Dec 26, 2004 08:33 AM

It was a lot of work, but worth the effort. My friend and I prepared the Boeuf Bourguignon from the Bouchon cookbook for a Christmas Eve dinner party. Day one, I made the veal stock with great neck bones. Day two, we reduced the wine with vegetables, seared the meat, and braised it. Day Three, we did a lot of defatting and prepared the final vegetables. Our ingredients were impecible -- short ribs and bacon for lardons from Lobels, vegetables from Union Square Market, good Cabernet for the braising, straight-from-Paris fleur de sel and European butter for finishing. It was amazing. The recipe was detailed and accurate. We learned lots of techniques in the process.
