French Beef/Pork Recipes (Most Popular)
I always make my sheppard's pie w/93% or 97% lean beef. I make my own mash potatoes by whipping them w/a mixer. I use lite sodium broth and Brummel and Browns margarine to whip the potatoes. Layer the cooked groundbeef, onions, celery in a 2-3 quart deep dish casserole pan. Then add a layer of frozen whole kernel corn, then add the final layer, mashed/whipped potatoes. Bake for 30-45 minutes @ 375 degrees.Submitted by CYBERMEOW
Based on a wonderful recipe from McCall's Cooking School, Meat #22. The intro says, "Lamb and beans the French way. To most Americans, accustomed to pork with their beans, lamb with white beans is an unusual combination. But it's an everyday meal to the French, particularly those from Brittany. The beans are cooked until tender, combined with garlic, onion, herbs and plum tomatoes, then cooked again for several hours with the lamb. We like our roast lamb fairly well done, while the French prefer it pink. A meat thermometer is a great help in roasting it to just the right degree."
I saw a not as healthy version of Steak Frites, the French dish, on America's Test Kitchen. I decided to make a healthier version by skipping the butter, choosing top round steak over ribeye steak, grilling instead of frying, dressing the greens with red wine vinegar instead of regular salad dressing, using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for more fiber and nutrients, and baking with parchment paper and cinnamon instead of frying with peanut oil and cornstarch.Submitted by PARADISE131

Just the right saltiness... creaminess... to satisfy the craving for comfort food, but it's still less than 395 calories per serving!
