As my husband polished off his portion and then started in on my plate of this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Veal Marengo, I warned him to slow down and savor it, because it was the last stew recipe in the book. Yay! Sorry, I meant that last sentiment to be a quiet inner voice. What can I say, while my fellow Doristas are celebrating a fish-free Friday, I am celebrating the fact that I will be unlikely to face another bowl of stewed meat for many years to come.
My husband, of course, loved this recipe and had no problem finishing both plates. So the score this week is 1 winning stew recipe + 1 appreciative stew lover + 1 “happy that’s done” stew hater. I’m going to call it a win.
