Pot au Feu

Inspired by an elderly lady sitting next to me in Chez Paul last week, I decided to have a go at this French classic. It also helped that I was in Ridley Road market and they had some 'shin' for sale.


I also got to use my fantastic shiny new casserole pot!



Some bacon frying





I always chuckle when a recipe asks for this sort of thing







Before





And after...


Unfortunately - the shin was far to 'cheap' a cut - and ended up being all gristle. Shame - as the sauce was excellent. Not the greatest dish - and certainly not like a classic Pot au Feu. You win some - you loose some.
