Tell Me More

  • Winner of numerous Great Taste Awards, this French classic is one of our most popular dishes
  • British top rump beef, aged for at least 21 days, is braised for almost four hours
  • About a glass of Merlot in every portion

      Try it with:

      • We love it with rice, but it goes just as well with potatoes, like Dauphinoise or Creamy Mash. Crisp, golden rounds of French bread fried in olive oil and sprinkled with parsley make a lovely addition, too
      • Some steamed asparagus spears, tenderstem or purple sprouting broccoli, kale, and French beans all work wonderfully on the side
      • Or, try roasting some shallots in the oven with a dressing of balsamic vinegar, sea salt, demerara sugar and olive oil. 180 degrees for 15 minutes and they're ready

Feeding a Crowd Tips

This dish is perfect for entertaining large groups of friends and family this winter.

To serve 20: defrost 5 x 4 portions in the refrigerator overnight, decanter into a large heavy based pan and cook on the hob for around 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Ensure it is piping hot before serving.

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • Top rump beef is braised for up to four hours in onions, garlic, rosemary, thyme, bay leaves and enough red wine to float a battleship (there's around a glass of French Merlot in each and every portion)
  • Then it's time for the smoked lardons, sauteed chestnut mushrooms and caramelised shallots
  • Watch the video on this page to see our co-founder Dale make it in person
