ceitagh Good Home Cooking: Recipes!!! (18) RE: GOOD HOME COOKING: RECEIPES !!! 16 Aug 00

I've got a pair here that go really well together. Some dutch recipes of my mother's, meat and potatoes with a bit of nederlanders style:


1 pound stewing meat
1 pound onions, diced
2 tablespoons veggie oil
cloves, bay leaves, salt, basil

brown onion in veg. oil, add stewing meat and cloves, stew for about 45 minutes with a little water or beef stock. add bay leaves, salt, and basil according to taste, stew another 45 minutes. Serve.

These are poor man's mother always points out to us that they originally would have had a lot more onion and a lot less of anything else. Here's the other:


an equal amount potatoes, onions, and carrots, chopped (about one potato per person, my mother says)
butter, milk (we use about a third cup butter and the same milk)
pepper and salt to taste

cook potatoes, onions, and carrots until soft, then mash with milk and butter. add salt and pepper if desired, and serve. This mashed potato mixture goes really well with any kind of steak, roast, stew or burger.

My family loves these recipes, tho they're not exactly healthy! :-)

Pax, Ceit
