The Heartiest of Easy French Recipes - Beef Casserole With French Bread Dumplings


Category :

Beef recipes are claimed by many countries as signature dishes; beef Stroganoff, beef goulash, beef bourginon etc. This is a variation of the latter and these easy French recipes are, in my opinion, the tastiest of all.

  1. 24oz/700g lean topside or rump steak
  2. 2 large onions
  3. 12oz/350g carrots
  4. 1oz/25g plain flour
  5. 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  6. 1 beef stock cube
  7. 3/4 pint/450ml beer or stout
  8. 1 teaspoon soft brown sugar
  9. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  10. 1 bay leaf
  11. 2 tablespoons French mustard
  12. salt and black pepper
  13. half stick French bread

  • Peel and finely slice the onions. Peel and slice the carrots diagonally. Trim any fat and gristle away from the meat and cut into 3/4 inch/2cm cubes.
  • Season the flour well and spread it on a plate. Roll the meat cubes in the seasoned flour until coated on all sides. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Fry the onions for 3-4 minutes until softened. Stir in the carrots and the meat cubes.
  • Crumble the stock cube over the meat and vegetable mixture. Add the beer or stout, sugar, thyme and bay leaf. Bring to the boil, stirring continuously. Cover and simmer for 55-60 minutes until the meat is cooked through.
  • Cut the bread into1/2 inch/1cm thick slices, lightly toast them and spread French mustard on one side. Layer the French bread slices on top of the meat, mustard side up. Place the pan under a medium grill for 1-2 minutes, until the toast is crispy.
I like to serve this easy French recipes as a main course or winter supper with Brussels sprouts, fresh garden peas and boiled potatoes.

Bon Appetite.
