Liam, some Food52 members are not English speakers.

You will be fine using the flour you have. it contains more gluten than all-purpose flour, which could cause your dish to over-thicken some. You can counter-act this by using a bit more butter, since fats have a tenderizing effect on proteins.

I posted this on the Hotline app (just after my first comment about English speakers) when I realized the second post was also Liam's: "Oh, wait -- you also asked the question! LOL!" For some reason, some comments on the Hotline app don't post on the website. Why my comment got voted "best answer" is beyond me, a mistake for sure. I'll now join the chorus of members asking for an edit function on comments! My apologies, Liam! But you got a very good answer from Boulangere who really knows her stuff.
