coq au vin


just finished eating coq au vin that ive spent the last few hours making. first time eating it and i must say it was some good shite. i followed julia childs recipe to a T except for the thyme, which my wife hates. it probably could have used it though. i ended up putting some parsley in instead. served with rice like a true southerner.

if you make it, dont skimp on the wine since it is the main ingredient. i used 3 cups of a $15 bottle of french beaujolais and 2 cups of beef stock

I almost made chicken that way today but the first few recipes called for overnight. Instead I did smothered chicken with red wine for half the stock. It was awesome. One of the better meals I've cooked.

It only took me a little under 3 with prep.

I prefer egg noodles over rice and using more chicken stock and beer than wine/sherry. Mushrooms and carrots, added at the right time, can make this dish phenomenol.

More beer than wine or sherry

Then it's not so much coq au vin, it's coq a' biere

also you dont see much rooster for sale out there so it's probably not even 'coq'

A roasting hen or a capon is the thing to buy for the dish.
