Beef Onion Glaze with Homemade Potato Dumplings



- For the Beef Onion Glaze:

  • Beef: 250 g (8.8 oz)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Onions: 2 medium-sized
  • Tomato paste: 1 teaspoon
  • Demi-glace: 200 g (7 oz or approx. 3/4 cup)
  • Bay leaf: 1

- For the Potato Dumplings:

  • Potatoes: 500 g cooked and mashed (about 2 cups)
  • Flour: 100 g (3.5 oz or about 3/4 cup)
  • Egg yolk: 1
  • Salt, to taste
  • Nutmeg, a pinch
  • Oil for frying


  1. Season the beef with salt, pepper, and oil. Massage well. Cook in a skillet on both sides until desired doneness. Set aside.
  2. Slice the onions and cook them in the same pan. Add the tomato paste and mix well. Then add the demi-glace, bay leaf, salt, and pepper, and return the beef to the pan to cook for a few more minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the mashed potatoes with an egg yolk, flour, and a pinch of nutmeg. Roll the dough out to create gnocchi-shaped pieces, but make them slightly elongated.
  4. Fry the potato dumplings in plenty of hot oil until golden brown.
  5. Serve the beef with the onion glaze and the potato dumplings on the side.
