Rach makes a comforting Irish stew of beef chuck, carrots and baby potatoes with Dijon mustard.
Heat a Dutch oven over medium to medium-high heat. Dredge meat in flour seasoned with sage, salt, black pepper and white pepper, and brown in butter in 2 batches. Add more butter if necessary and the onions and shallots, season with salt and pepper, add bay and cook to soften, partially covered, 7 to 8 minutes. Add cognac or brandy and let it absorb. Add wine, Dijon, bone stock and Worcestershire, slide beef into sauce, cook at very low, simmer covered 1½ hours, add carrots, parsnip and parsley root, the baby potatoes and cook 30 minutes more. Stir in the grainy Dijon mustard to finish the stew’s sauce.
For the sherry mushrooms, heat a skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter, add mushrooms and brown, add salt, pepper, thyme and garlic and toss 2 minutes, add sherry and lemon juice.
Top the stew with mushrooms and serve with crusty bread.
