Traditional French Cassoulet Recipe

By Jen E Carter

The French have a wonderful tradition of good food with many delicious regional specialities.

Eating in the Languedoc Roussillon or Provence regions, you're likely to come across the speciality of Cassoulet. It's a wonderful country recipe that's a combination of beans, pork, sausages and, of course, garlic and herbs. Some have called it a peasant stew, but it far exceeds that humble name.

This is a wonderful dish to cook in the cold of winter as you can leave it warming whilst you're out and tuck in when you return.

However, this is not a dish for the reluctant as it's quite time-consuming to prepare - yet one taste will have you hooked and enjoying it regularly.

Traditional French Cassoulet recipe


500g tin of cannelini beans
500g belly pork, cut into 4cm squares
500g lamb pieces or mutton
250g chopped smoked bacon (cooking bacon is fine)
450g Toulouse sausage, cut into pieces
2 onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
3 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp provencal herbs
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 180C, GM4
Place the beans, onion, garlic, bacon and herbs in a pan
Add 500ml water
Bring to the boil and simmer for ten minutes
Fry the belly pork and lamb pieces in olive oil
Cook in the oven for ten minutes
Add the Toulouse sausage and cook for a further twenty minutes
Place all cooked ingredients into a large casserole
Add more water, if necessary
Cover & cook for one and a half to two hours on a low heat
Check regularly to ensure that there's sufficient water

If you're out of time, it's possible to buy large tins of this traditional meal when you're across the Channel at the French supermarkets - don't miss out!
