Hello my fellow foodies!
Today I am going to share with you one of my favorite go-to recipes that I am sure everyone in your family will enjoy!
It is super duper easy and tastes divine.
You probably know how to make this already, however I am going to share it with you anyway, and if don't, well, honey, you are just missing out!
The French call this pot au feu, which translates to pot roast or beef stew. It's slow cooked for several hours and you will know when it is ready because your whole house will smell like heaven!
The meat is so tender it just falls apart, and every veggie you add to the stew will compliment each other. So, without further ado...
NEEDED: recipe for two
Beef round or chuck
4 medium sized potatoes chopped in quarters
1 celery stalk chopped & pick off a few celery leaves for flavor
1 carrot peeled & chopped in rounds
1 bay leaf
half a bouillon cube
salt and pepper to taste (add when served)
Since my husband and I live in a small studio, we do not have as many modern conveniences as the average person. Therefore, my version of this recipe can be altered to your convenience, such as using a crock pot or dutch oven.
I used a pot with a lid and slow cooked it on the stove for more than five hours. First, I boiled about 2 cups of water with the bouillon cube and the bay leaf, then placed the meat in the boiling water, seperating them evenly.
I then turned down the stove tempature to low, and added the potatoes, next the carrots, and finally the celery plus a couple of the celery leaves, covered it and waited!
In the end, it looks a little something like this and tastes just like heaven!
Please remember to add the salt and pepper once it is served.
Until next time, I bid you adieu and bon appetit!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
