It’s the ideal time to concoct a delicious veal blanquette! Nothing better than such a comforting dish to warm you up. However, its preparation takes time and is sometimes quite energy intensive. Precisely to save some money, chef Norbert Tarayre reveals his advice on Instagram for a tasty blanquette that consumes little energy!

The chef’s number 1 tip is to defrost the ingredientsespecially frozen meat, directly during cooking. This will make the process faster. To do this, the chef will simply immerse the meat in a broth.

Other essential advice for Norbert Tarayre: cover the stew : “I put a lid on my pan because the more it is covered, the less energy it consumes and the better it will cook”. By covering the meat, for example, it will have time to defrost and will thus release its juices and cook.

Ensuite everything happens in the same casserole dish. No cooking on the side and no need to strain the vegetables or meat: “We will keep everything and we will directly incorporate our thickener and that is the useful gesture”. You will then simply add this sauce to the preparation and the blanquette will be ready.

To finish :
