Pot-au-feu (Beef Stew) Recipe

I’m back with a recipe this time ! I’m not a great cook. Actually, I mostly burn everything I try to cook, but it doesn’t stop me from trying, and with time I’m getting better at it. For a few months, I had my eyes on a Cookeo from Moulinex (picture below). You just have to add your ingredients, and it will cook by itself, which was just the perfect machine for me.
Luckily for me, my grand-parents decided to get it for me for Christmas and I was so greatful ! (it is not cheap… My version which is I think the basic one cost around 200€/$238/176£).
And with the Winter season clearly here, I decided to try the « Pot au feu » recipe, and it was just delicious !


For 4 persons

  • 4 potatoes cut into 4 pieces each
  • 1kg of beef chuck cut into pieces
  • 2 leeks cut into pieces
  • 4 carrots cut into pieces
  • 1 turnip cut into 4 pieces (I added another as I though it wasn’t enough but do as you wish!)
  • 1 bouquet garni (usually it’s thyme, oregano, parsley, and laurel)
  • 2L of water

  • Cut all your vegetables
  • Cut your meat into pieces (the size of your pieces doesn’t really matter)
  • Put your Cookeo on the manual cooking mode, then « Simmer »
  • Wait for the preheat to end
  • Add the 2L of water
  • Add your meat, and bring it to the boiling point for 10mins
  • Skim the brownish foam on top of your water
  • Remove 1L of water
  • Add the rest of your ingredients
  • Add salt, and pepper
  • Deactivate the « Simmer » function and come back to the manual mode
  • Select « Pressure cooking »
  • Program the cooking time to 40mins.
  • Close your Cookeo

Enjoy !
