POT-AU-FEU

(Soups.) - (The Art Of Living In Australia)







3 lbs. Leg of Beef--6d.

2 quarts Water

1 fagot of Herbs

Salt and Pepper

2 Onions

2 Carrots

2 Turnips

1 doz. Peppercorns--1 1/2d.

Total Cost--7 1/2 d.

Pot-au-feu is the national dish of France; it is cheap, nourishing and
palatable, and very simple to make. The slower it is cooked the better
it is; in fact, in this lies the whole secret of success, for
if it boils instead of simmering it is spoilt. Tie the meat up into a
nice shape with a piece of tape, put it into cold water, bring slowly
to the boil, and very carefully remove the scum; peel and slice up the
vegetables, and put them in with the fagot of herbs and the peppercorns
tied in a piece of muslin; bring to simmering point, and keep it so for
five hours. The liquor can then be served as a soup with part of the
vegetables and some sippets of toast. Take the tapes off the meat, and
serve with the rest of the vegetables round the dish as a border or
garnish. The remains of the beef can be pressed between heavy weights
till cold, or put into a brawn tin and served cold with a salad.
