Beef Fricot

Made with a variety of meats and potatoes, Beef Fricot is a traditional Acadian/French Canadian dish but with a number of historical Louisiana variations.

Beef Fricot

1-2  lb Beef, chuck Cubed 
lb Potatoes, Yukon Gold Peeled, cubed 
 Onion, yellow Roughly chopped 
cup Broth, beef  
tsp Savory  
  Flour, AP  
  Oil, canola  
  Pepper, black  

1 Dredge the beef in the flour, coating each piece and shaking off excess. Briefly sear the beef in oil and butter over medium-high heat to brown on each side. Remove and set aside. 

2 In the same oil, sauté the onions until soft, about 5 min. Deglaze with a little water or stock, scraping up any browned bits that remain. 

3 Add the beef, potatoes, cooked onions with liquid, broth and seasonings to a heavy pot or slow cooker. Bring to a simmer and cook over low heat, covered, for 4-6 hours or until all ingredients are tender and cooked through. Season to taste. 

Finish with finely chopped chives. Serve with crusty bread. 

Yield: 4 servings
