I joined the Cook's Illustrated recipe testers about a year ago and it has been a lot of fun so far. I got an email from them late last week and I was so excited when I opened the link and found that Beef Burgundy was the recipe. What fun!!! I started by searching Meijer for salt pork. I never purchased it before and after searching for 10 minutes I found it next to the bacon. Duh!! By the time I got home it was after 7 and I was looking at 3 hours of cooking. As I started prepping, I had such a Julie/Julia moment. I felt like Julia was coming to dinner and I had to deliver. Silly, huh?!? Anyway, I started chopping and browning and before I knew it, my house smelled like a French Bistro awaiting dinner guests. Wow, the smell is really incredible. Unfortunately I can't share the recipe quite yet but it is coming and when it does, get ready!
