Dutch recipe for hachee


Dice the beef, sprinkle with salt, pepper and flour and then cut the onion into chunks. Next heat the butter or margarine in a frying pan and fry the meat until golden brown. Now add in the onions and fry for a further few minutes. Next add ½ litre of water, the stock cube, vinegar, red wine, bay leaves and cloves (alternatively use a packet of Honig stew mix in place of the individual herbs). Bring the mixture to the boil, cover and leave to stew for approximately 3 hours. Serve with new or mashed potatoes and warm red cabbage.
