FFWD Green as Spring Stew
I've been having terrible luck with the FFWD recipes recently. I was all set to make this week's recipe, but came down with a migraine instead. I kept trying to cook, but eventually got Paul to make the recipe while I rested on the couch. Because I don't eat veal, we turned this into a much faster, simpler version. We substituted cubes of turkey tenderloin for the veal, skipped the initial boiling step, and only simmered the turkey for about 15 minutes until it was cooked through. Neither one of us has ever cooked veal so I'm very curious to see how all of your recipes turned out. 1.5 hours seems like such a long time to simmer cubes of meat. Does it fall apart? Anyway, I wouldn't call ours a stew. It was more like cooked turkey and steamed potatoes with a green sauce. The sauce was too salty (in hindsight, Paul shouldn't have salted until after the broth was reduced), but I really liked the flavor of the herbs. I'm not sure if I'd make the whole recipe again, but I could definitely see myself making this green sauce to serve on all sorts of things.
