i want to make beef bourguignon but here's the catch...I don't eat beef. The dish sounds delish and always looks great.....and would be nice for cold weather. Would it be silly to try it with pork or poultry? Anyone tried it before?

I think that you could certainly use lamb to good effect. Do you eat lamb? Can you get or make lamb stock?

If you are going to use chicken thighs or pork shoulder, I would not simply use a bourguignon recipe and replace the protein. Instead, I'd make a similar dish that is more suited to those meats. Have you considered coq au vin?

Most times, you don't want chicken pieces to cook for the same length of time as beef. Here is Julia Child's recipe for Coq au Vin, with is essentially "chicken bourguignon," chicken braised in red wine with onions and mushrooms. It takes about an hour.

smittenkitchen has a great recipe for mushroom bourguignon. I made it last winter and it was great. Here's the link:

The mushroom bourguinon looks wonderful, and as an omnivore, I'll try that. Otherwise, go with Julia's Coq au Vin. It's wonderful. If you come up with a special twist of your own, please do post it!
