    Just Call Me Martha's Note:

    A family favorite. It takes a fair amount of time to do, but it is well worth the effort. The topping of lemon, parsley and mushrooms is divine. IF there are any leftovers, they are even better the next day.

      I've made this a few times with excellent results. I've determined that the use of bacon is superfluous and can be dispensed with easily. (Although if I'm cooking up a batch of bacon for BLTs, this is a good use of the grease.) Serving with pasta or rice is OK, but around our house, satin-smooth mashed potatoes is de rigueur. Also artisan bread and creamery butter really go well with this meal. Scrumptious!

      Absolutely worth the effort. We enjoyed this warming, delicious dish for dinner last night with mashed potatoes and brocolli. No changes to the recipe, apart from using big carrots cut into bits!

      I made this last Sunday and it was fabulous. Having recently been in Paris, and having a superb bourguignon at a great little bistro in the 6th, I was dying to try this, using a bourguignon spice we bought at the Versailles Sunday market. I used regular carrots, sliced large instead of baby carrots, omitted the mushroom/lemon topping, and used my bourguignon spice mix, so while I didn't completely follow the recipe, we thought the dish was superb. My DH said it was even better than what we had in Paris. And the leftovers? Martha's comment that it's better the next day is spot on. The flamed cognac, browning the meat (critical to developing flavor), and baking it in the oven all make this recipe authentic and totally delicious. I will be making this again - thank you, Just Call Me Martha, for an absolutely superb recipe!
