Simple Dutch comfort food

My kids bought me a Creuset Dutch oven, I’ve always wanted one. They weigh a ton but are ideal for slow cooked foods on the stove.

The thick walls keep the heat and it’s very much like a slow cooker.

This dish is a very traditional dish, the vinegar gives it a bit of a tangy taste and the meat is tender.

Hachee (Hash)

5 onions
3 tbs butter
1.5 pounds stew meat (beef)
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbs flour
1 bouillon cube
2 tbs vinegar
1 tsp sugar
2 bay laurel leaves
4 cloves

Cut onions and set aside
In butter saute the meat, add onions as meat is browning.
Sprinkle salt,pepper and flour over meat and onions and mix well.
Add boullion cube and enough water to almost cover the meat
Add vinegar, sugar, bay leaves and the cloves.
Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let it simmer for 3 hours
Remove the bay leaves and the cloves
Taste the gravy and if needed add salt and pepper

Traditionally this dish is eaten with mashed potatoes and red cabbage.
