Beef Daube Provencal with Roasted Red Potatoes

This dish slowed cooked for  5 hours and the  Cabernet Sauvignon , meat, onions, thyme, rosemary and garlic just brought a beautiful smell to my house. I got this really incredibly flavorful and tender meat recipe from Cooking Light.   I obtained the Roasted Red Potato Recipe from the Food Network and the rosemary is a really nice touch to these potatoes- I say go with fresh Rosemary if you have it on hand.  This is definitely a repeat recipe- I’m adding it in the rotation! 🙂   For the bread, I bought sliced sour dough from Albertsons because I love their fresh baked breads, definitely the best grocery store in my area.  What I did was added Extra Virgin Olive Oil- drizzled it on the bread slices- dash of salt and pepper and toasted it under the Broiler for 2 mins.  I scooped up the onions and tomatoes in this dish onto the bread slices and it made for a fantastic finish to my meal!  How I love to eat…. hehe  Also, I used  Catena Cab 2008 from Argentina for the wine in this dish and with this dish. 🙂
