Natalie Richard: In Good Taste


Pot-Au-Feu: French for "Make this Delicious Meal Tonight"

The Most Comforting Winter Meal Ever

This is a classic and the most comforting meal you can make in the winter season. It is really easy to prepare and it cooks slowly for hours while you can rest or do something else.

 Pre-heat the oven to 350F.

 Put the meat, vegetables, stock, wine, and water in a roasting pan.
