Deglaze with the meat stock, add cream, season with salt and pepper as required and simmer for at least 20 minutes. Thicken with a little flour butter before serving.

Seasoned potatoes

Put the potato cubes in the pan and fry for about 15 minutes on a medium heat, stirring several times. Chop the garlic cloves, spring onions, and chilli into small pieces and add to the potatoes. Add cumin and salt the potatoes. Fry an additional 5 to 10 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through. In the meantime, chop the parsley and mix it with the potatoes, season with the lemon juice, add a little salt if necessary.

Green beans

  • Blanch the beans in salted water for 5 minutes and chill in ice water. Wrap the bacon in portions. Heat the herb butter in the pan and cook the beans in it for about 7 minutes and season with herb salt before serving.
