Recipe directions

 

  • First we will blanch the meat, by boiling it at medium heat for about 10 minutes, while continuously skimming the froth from the top, as shown.
  • Once the froth has been removed, rince meat and allow to drain in colander.
  • Season the meat with salt and pepper.
  • Sauté the meat for a few minutes or until a crust develops. Once done, place meat in a large pot.
  • Next, we will sauté the onions for a few minutes or until transluscent.
  • Next, we will mix the tomato  paste with the water, and we will add the sugar.
  • Add the tomato mixture into the sautéing onions.
  • Once ready, add the onion/tomato mixture into the pot along with the meat.
  • At this point, add some more water.
  • Bring again to a boil and then reduce heat to medium to allow the dandelions to cook.
  • After 30 minutes of cooking the dandelions, add the cooked meat.
  • Next, we will take some hot juices from the pot in order to gradually  warm up the egg/lemon sauce to prevent the eggs from curdling.
  • Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks, and beat the egg whites until foamy.
  • Next, add the egg yolks and mix some of the lemon juice with the cornstarch before adding it to the beaten eggs.
  • Add some more lemon juice or to taste.
  • Gradually add the hot liquid a bit at a time.
  • The Fricase is now ready.
