Beef casserole Dijon - Biffgryta Dijon

Biffgryta Dijon

A hearty beef casserole flavoured with mustard! Serve with tagliatelle or potatoes and also a piece of baguette – no sauce must be left on the plate!

5 to 6 servings

Approx 1 ¾ lbs boneless beef,
cut in cubes
1 onion
2 celery stems
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 large crushed garlic clove
2 tbsps flour
½ tsp dried thyme
good 1/3 cup tomato purée
2 tbsps Dijon mustard
1 ¾ to 2 cups meat bouillon
good 1/3 cup red wine
salt, pepper

Chop the onion and cut the celery in pieces. Heat the oil in a pot and sizzle onion, celery and garlic for a couple of minutes. Put in the meat and maybe some more oil. Brown on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add thyme, tomato purée, mustard and bouillon and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low heat for 1 to 1½ hours or until the meat is tender. Add wine and flavour to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil again and serve the casserole really hot.

Serve with tagliatelle or potatoes, green beans and a green salad plus some good bread. You can substitute the red wine with meat bouillon.
