FFWD: Navarin Printanier
A very French Friday meal started with Sardine Rillettes, cornichons and a baguette. Now get my IPad and open Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table. If you don't already have this book...GO GET IT!!! As I nibbled I finished up the Navarin Printanier, lamb stew with spring vegetables. My least favorite ingredient to prep, but love...small white onions. It takes a little time to peel them, but worth it! Red potatoes, carrots and turnips. I didn't peel the carrots, turnips, or potatoes, a time-saving thing in my case. I should also mention, I seared the lamb earlier in the day and put it in the slow cooker with broth, cloves of garlic, herbs, tomato paste and flour, then went to work. Fast Forward 8 hours... OK, throw everything in a Dutch oven...I accidentally added a little Pinot noir...then simmer, simmer, simmer. When the potatoes are done...YUM!
