Pot Au Feu

I have always wanted to try Pot au Feu, with its frou-frou name and vegetables cut on the diagonal. How fancy!
It is also pretty healthy which is always a plus.

So here we have our veggies - 2 carrots, 2 celery, 1 1/2 turnips (they were sort of big) some leeks and a small zucchini.

I bought a pack of tenderloin steaks and browned them with some non-stick spray.

I added 4 cups of chicken broth, the veg, 2 cloves of garlic that I sliced in half, 2 sprigs of lemon thyme from the slowly dying plant on the floor, and some pepper.

Simmered it for 20 minutes, discarded the thyme and garlic, removed the steaks and sliced into thin strips. Then put a couple of pieces of steak in each bowl with some vegetables and broth.
It was just lovely, very flavorful and filling, but still a light meal that didn't leave us feeling weighed down.
Give it a try.

Looks like a dish to add to the comfort food category. :)
