Food & Drink Around The World: The Heartiest of Easy French Recipes


Welcome readers, we shall share the writing coming from all food recipes, which can be directly practiced at your house

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.
