Limousin beef revisited by Anne Alassane

During these festivals, great Limousin chefs reinvent our traditional recipes. Potato pâté, stuffed cabbage, hotpot, flognarde … Today, a beef dish reviewed and corrected by the famous cook installed in Haute-Vienne, Anne Alassane.

The Limousine is a rustic breed of cattle with taste qualities proven. In our countryside, the inhabitants mainly consumed small pieces of beef.

We weren’t very rich. Buyers and butchers took more easily the pieces from the back, the pieces left before were sold off. However, this meat deserves our full attention. When you know how to cook it, it will give the best of itself, a very good softness. It’s a meat excellent for making all those stews.” Régine-Rossi Lagorce, culinary columnist at France Bleu Limousin.

Our Limousin beef is, for this recipe, revisited “à l’anglaise” by the chef living in Haute-Vienne, Anne Alassane.
