Jachtschotel: Centuries-Old Dutch Casserole RecipeRelive the ages-old tradition of "Jachtschotel," a centuries-old Dutch dish. It is an amazing casserole with onions, apples, and mashed potatoes. The name translates to "Hunter's casserole," and was originally made with the tough cuts of meats of whatever game they hunted. It was cooked for a few hours with onions and other vegetables and then baked in a casserole with added apples and mashed potatoes. I have updated the recipe to use beef short ribs rather than pheasant or wild boar (though feel free to use them if you like!)

Blinde Vinken: Centuries-Old Dutch Recipe of Ground Beef Wrapped in Top RoundLear to make a recipe has been common practice for centuries. For instance, the Middle Ages offered many dishes that were considered a delicacy by some, but would not have been affordable by others due to their cost. One example is small songbirds like finches and sparrows. Due to their high price, it was more common for regular people to recreate these types of recipes and make them accessible by using cheap cuts of meat - ground beef and pounded thin top round - cooked in a delicious sauce. My recipe of "Blinde Vinken" (Blind Finches) allows you to easily make this at home with the proper proportions which will taste remarkably close to what they ate during those times!
