Maison Maille Culinary Challenge
I am always up for a challenge and when the opportunity came to enter the Maison Maille culinary challenge, to incorporate one of their products in to a recipe, I had to enter! I decided to use the Maison Maille fresh wholegrain mustard with Chardonnay wine for use in my recipe.
Here is my entry of the competition – spicy beef stew with mustard baguette dumplings.
The mustard is available on the Maille website here
– 1 onion
– 3-4 shallots
– fresh chilli to taste

– Maison Maille fresh wholegrain mustard for the baguette.
– Preheat the oven to 140-150 degrees.
– Chop the onions, shallots and chilli and soften with a splash of oil in a oven proof casserole dish on the hob.
– When the onions are soft add the beef and lightly brown off.

– Add the stock, tomatoes, teaspoon of mustard and the splash of Worcestershire Sauce and wine. Season with salt and pepper and the dried thyme.

– After 1h30 slice the baguette into good chunks about 2 inches wide. Coat one side of the baguette with wholegrain mustard.
– Pop into the baguette pieces into the stew – don’t push them down too far as you don’t want the pieces soggy.

– Serve and enjoy.
I love a beef stew and these are the ingredients I started with.

The amount of mustard you put on it to taste. This wholegrain mustard with the Chardonnay wine is sweet and not too strong so more was certainly better.
The baguette on top of the stew ready to serve. The bottom half of the baguette will be full of the juice of the stew.
I hope you like my beef stew with mustard baguette dumplings.
