This was a tasty dish and I was glad to finally get to use cipolline onions in a recipe. I have often eyed those cute little onions but have never used them. On the practical side, this recipe had too many separate components which created a lot of dishes. I ended up making this on a Monday night and it was just too much fuse for a week night meal. I should have cooked the beef longer since it was not as tender as veal but I was afraid of drying out the rest of the dish. It really did not have much liquid. I don’t know where all that liquid comes from in the picture especially since you are suppose to drain the canned diced tomatoes. I wish I had added that liquid.
On another day I made Not-Just-For -Thanksgiving Cranberry Shortbread Cake from Baking From My Home to Yours. It was deemed the best item I have baked from a Dorie cookbook. I think this one will be making a repeat, maybe even for Thanksgiving.
Since I was joking with Mary about cemeteries, I thought I would throw one into the mix. This cemetery is located on the island of Isla Mujeres off of Cancun, Mexico. We took a vacation to Cancun in 2005 and came across this very colorful and quaint cemetery.
