This recipe in GIF
Stage 1 -
Prepare the accompanying vegetables and bacon
Peel and rinse 200 g turnip, dry and cut into chunks.
Do the same with 200 g
(here I am using delicious little carrots in different colours) and 200 g Jerusalem artichoke.
Peel 200 g
, rinse if necessary and cut into chumks (wood blewits here).
Stage 2 -
Peel and rinse 200 g Brussels sprouts, then cut into 4 lengthways.
Only use the white part of the leek and chop finely.
Peel 100 g
and chop finely.
Dice 150 g belly (streaky) bacon small (use smoked if possible).
Stage 3 -
2 min. Prepare the meatRinse and dry 1 kg 200 g beef, then salt and pepper all over.
Stage 4 -
Use a large casserole that can be used both on the hob and in the oven. Heat 3 tablespoons
on high heat.
When hot, add the meat and brown all over (1 or 2 minutes on each side).
Stage 5 -
Remove the meat from the pan and
Turn the heat down slightly and add the bacon pieces.
Stage 6 -
Add the chopped onion, salt and pepper. Cook for 1 or 2 minutes.
Stage 7 -
Add the mushrooms, stir and cook for a further 2 or 3 minutes.
Stage 8 -
Add the juice of ½
Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
Stage 9 -
Add the vegetables all at once (carrots, Jerusalem artichokes, turnips and sprouts). Salt and pepper, then cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
This brief initial frying of the vegetables and bacon is what gives the dish a depth of flavour that just isn't possible by simply adding them raw.
Stage 10 -
Put the meat back into the pan. Sit it right on the bottom (press it down to be sure), surrounded by the vegetables.
Pour in 100 ml
dry white wine
and 100 ml
and season again.
Stage 11 -
Stage 12 -
Cook in a slow oven for 4 hours.
The ideal way to serve is to bring the casserole to the table still sealed and break open the crust in front of everyone, so they can all share the delicious cooking aromas.
As is usual with this kind of popular bistro dish, everyone helps themselves to the meat and vegetables as they like.
There is no need to cut the meat, it is deliciously tender ("confit") and can simply be pulled apart with a fork! Remarks
For the mushrooms, choose wild ones if possible, as they have more flavour. Use either fresh ones in season or dried (morels or chanterelles, for example).
If you do not have any vegetable stock (step 10), use a chicken stock cube instead. If for any reason you cannot or do not wish to seal the dish (a pity), increase the amount of liquid (wine and stock) by 50% to allow for evaporation during cooking. Nutritional information
