Help a vegetarian out with Boeuf Bourguignon??

Thanks! Yes, my goal is to make a yummy beef dish for my boyfriend + his parents. I like to cook, and do so frequently, so I'm not too afraid of trying something new - just looking for any pointers from more experienced chowhounds. :)

thanks for the advice! Yes, I'm hoping to find pearl onions, but I haven't always had luck with that at the markets near my house.

Thanks for the advice! Since it's just my boyfriend and his parents, I'm not too worried about the servings, particularly since there will be substantial side dishes.

One of my good friends is going to pop in to pick up some stuff before they arrive, and she offered to taste-test. :)

Help a vegetarian out with Boeuf Bourguignon??

Hello! I'm a vegetarian cooking for my partner's family (normally he would help out, but he is away for work right up until the dinner).

I want to make boeuf bourguinon after the suggestion of a few people, but would love suggestions for a particular (simple-ish yet tasty) recipe - Julia Child's seemed a little too complicated for me. I'm thinking about this one: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.... I'm planning to serve it with potatoes. Plus side dishes, of course.

Also, any other tips to have it turn out deliciously would be much appreciated, since I can't taste the meat! Such as, which cuts exactly should I ask the butcher for? Does anyone know how to say the names in French? (I live in montreal and speak french, but I'm not sure about the specific meat words...

)

Thanks!
