Eat this Word: Pot-au-Feu

pot-au-feuWHAT? A "pot on the fire." Much more than the earthenware or cast-iron pot it is cooked in, pot-au-feu refers to a hearty, family-style French dish of meat (usually beef or chicken, with the addition of marrow bones, veal, pork, or mutton) and vegetables (traditionally carrots, turnips, celery, onions, and leeks) that is slowly cooked in water or consommé. The rich and meaty broth that results is served with croutons or pasta as a first course, followed by a main course of the meat and vegetables, which is accompanied by mustard or horseradish and cornichons.
