Beef cubes, sautéed then stewed with potatoes and peas in a broth.

A «fricassee» [pr. FRIHK-uh-see] is a dish of meat that has been sautéed in butter before being stewed with vegetables. It used to be a common way to use up leftovers from a Sunday roast, but it is so delicious that I don't wait for leftovers to make it.

Ingredients

240 g beef, inside round, or French steak, cut into 1 cm cubes
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 cm cubes 200 g
1 stalk celery, cut into 1 cm cubes 70 g
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
2/3 cup beef broth 170 mL
3 1/2 tbsp frozen peas 26 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.1 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh [optional] 5 g

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Cut the meat into small 1 cm cubes. Prepare the vegetables : Finely chop the onion and garlic; cut the potatoes and celery into 1 cm thick pieces.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a thick-bottom frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, sauté 3-4 min until translucent, then remove them and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add the cubes of beef and sear them over high heat 7-8 min until golden-brown. In order to brown the meat, it is important to remove any juices coming out of the meat, otherwise the meat will «boil» rather than brown. A bulb baster may be used to pull the juices out of the pan (The meat juices may be reserved and added back to the pan later with the broth).
  4. Add the remaining oil to the pan. Stir in the potatoes and celery, then sauté a few minutes. Pour in the broth (and any reserved meat juices), then deglaze. Put the onion and garlic back into the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, covered, over low heat 20-25 min, until the potatoes are soft. Add the peas and cook an additional 3 min.
  5. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley (optional) and serve in the warmed dishes.

I am allergic to beef, but can do bison. I used inside Round bison steaks and vegetable broth instead of beef broth. I used a lower temperature as it is a leaner meat. I think I cut my potatoes too small though because they got kind of mushy. Very good though.
