POT-AU-FEU – #14 of 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

‘Tis the time to revisit my

44 French Classic Meals You Need to Try Before You Die”

(modified for my tiny Galley kitchen of course)

Literally ‘pot on fire’ Pot-au-Few is a traditional French beef stew

made with beef marrow bones and root veggies,

which brings me to another thought I had for a series of posts…

(I do love series don’t I?)

Seasonal Eating

and this post fits in nicely into the month of November,

with chilly winds howling

…. and seasonal local root veggies featured.

#12 POT-AU-FEU

(pressure cooker version)

2 veal shanks (the kind used for Osso Buco)

flour for dusting

salt and pepper

cooking oil of choice (I used grapeseed oil)

a couple splashes of red wine to deglaze

1 cup beef broth

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, chopped

3 carrots, sliced

2 parsnips, sliced

2 small turnips, chopped into small pieces

1 tsp thyme

1 bay leaf

Dust veal with flour on both sides, then season well with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in the pressure cooker and brown veal well on both sides

(if you have a small cooker like I do, brown one shank at a time)

Deglaze with red wine.

Add veggies.

Mix herbs with the beef broth and pour over meat.

Set cooker for 25 minutes.

Once pressure is safely released,

serve and enjoy.

The meat went especially well with Horseradish Cream Sauce (recipe below)

HORSERADISH CREAM SAUCE

1/2 sour cream or plain Greek yogurt

1/8 cup horseradish

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp white wine vinegar

sea salt and pepper to taste

Mix all together and serve with the beef stew

Rich flavour in such a short cooking time.

I’m really loving this little pot!

P.S.
