French Beef/Pork Recipes (Most Popular)
If you're looking for a traditional beef stew recipe, this is it! This recipe is from Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and in French is called "Boeuf A La Catalane". I only altered it to use less bacon, less oil, and canned tomatoes. All the original french techniques are used to make this a phenomenal melt-in-your-mouth delicacy, fit for a king!! The sauce is actually velvety, and so rich!! Just add a steamed green veggie or salad to make a complete meal!!Submitted by TAMRACLOVEC

Warning predict the weather from the marinade!
In our travels through the Normandy area of France, we discovered the French style of hard apple cider -- very different from the American version. It's a little sweeter than the American version and comes in dry or semi-dry versions. This recipe was inspired by a fantastic dinner I had in Bayeux, although I've substituted boneless pork chops for the French-style bone-in chops to cut down on the fat. If you can find a French hard cider, give it a try. For this recipe, I used a dry British hard cider that I found at Trader Joe's and it is very similar in taste and texture to those we tasted in Normandy. For drinking purposes, make sure to serve it well chilled first!
You can substitute a pear for the apple for a slightly different, sweeter result. The picture shows this dish served with my roasted green beans and slices of baguette topped with a 1/2 slice of pear and a dot of chevre then toasted.
