in food •  5 months ago

Pot-au-feu which is French for "pot on the fire" is a French beef stew. There a few dishes that are the quintessence of French family cuisine and one of the most celebrated dishes in France. What I love about this meal is that it graces the tables of both the rich and poor. This meal is classless!

Method:

Put all the beef into a large casserole dish and season well. Add bay leaves and parsley stalks. Pour in 2.5 litres of water and cover with the lid. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 2 hours, skimming off the foam every 30 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and parsley stalks and add the remaining ingredients. Simmer until the vegetables are just tender.
