Print Recipe


  • 1 kg beef meat
  • 6 pieces carrots
  • 4 pieces parsley roots
  • 3 pieces onions medium size
  • 4 pieces bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp French mustard
  • 100 ml olive oil pork or goose fat
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 300 ml single cream or sour cream
  • [1 teaspoon vegetable mix]


  • I cut the meat into slices not too thick, 1-1.5 cm thick, and seasoned with sea salt. Wash the vegetables and clean them from the peel. Cut the onions, carrots and parsley roots into slices not very thin, however at the end they will be mixed.
  • When the meat is ready, fry it in olive oil, in a larger pot. We roast the meat until it gets a little color, then we turn it on the other side. Add sliced vegetables over meat and season with a teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of pepper and break about 3-4 bay leaves over them. Fill the pan with water to cover everything, and leave to boil over medium heat for about an hour.
  • We check if the meat has boiled well and take the pan from the fire. With a fork we remove the meat from the pot, on a plate, so do the bay leaves. With a hand blender, mix the vegetables together with the remaining juice, until we get a homogeneous sauce.
  • Season the sauce with two tablespoons of French mustard and 300 ml of single cream or sour cream. Taste, and if necessary add a little sea salt. Put the meat back in the sauce, and serve it with boiled pasta.
