Potée Lorraine

Lorraine potée (stew)

As its down-to-earth name suggests this is not the haute cuisine one finds in big restaurants but a good country dish, a traditional dish eaten regularly by working men and women in Lorraine villages, still very popular in Xaintois! Nothing is more nourishing or more flavoursome than a good stew! Rabelais said he had never found anything as succulent and the Countess of Noailles sang its praises as it was made with ingredients from her kitchen garden.
Recipe for 6 people

  •     1 ham off the hook, well cured and with a delicious aroma
  •     250gm of lean streaky bacon
  •     500gm shoulder of pork
  •     3 smoked cooking sausages
  •     1 lb of white haricot beans


Place all the ingredients in a saucepan of cold water. Bring it to the boil and let it simmer over a low fire for around 1½ hours.
Then add:

  •     12 potatoes
  •     1 curly kale
  •     12 average-sized carrots
  •     6 average-sized turnips
  •     1 onion
  •     a few whole peppercorns
  •     1 pinch of coarse salt
