French style beef and mushroom stew


While looking through the recipes that I've blogged during the last 4 months, I found one recipe that I especially liked - Sauteed Chicken/ Saute de Paulet. So this time I chose beef for almost the same recipe. Just with a touch of French wine, onion and bell peppers ( which I just adore).

What we need:

400 gr beef, cut into pieces
300 gr of mushrooms
2 medium onions
2 bell peppers
thyme
rosemary
3 cloves of garlic
500ml of beef stock
100ml of French wine
2 tbsp of butter or oil
3 tbsp of flour
salt and pepper to taste

What we have to do:

1. Put flour, chopped thyme, black pepper and salt into a plastic bag and put cut beef. Shake it well. Then fry beef on a pan with some oil or butter. Fry for 5 min.
2. In a pot add chopped onion and garlic, sautee it until medium soft. Then add fried beef, beef stock and red wine. Some more thyme and rosemary. Let it simmer for 20 min.
3. Then add cut bell peppers and simmer again for 20 min or until beef is completely soft. Serve hot with your favourite side dish or green salad.
