As I am the type of person who likes to procrastinate or so far ahead of time that I feel stress-free. Today I am making the Beef Daube for French Fridays with Dorie today. The weather is perfect making a stew, having the oven on steaming up the kitchen is such a comfort. I do not use alcohol in cooking so I combed the internet to find a replacement for the red wine in this recipe. One source said a daube's not a daube without wine, but I used pork broth (leftover from boiling my baby backs), mixed with 1/2 cup of red wine vinegar and 4 roasted tomato halves. The sauce has the look of red wine and smells amazing. My husband will be the final judge. I prepared Dorie's Celery root purée as a side dish, and I will make an escarole salad with a homemade ceasar dressing. See you Friday with the ratings.
