Ingredients for 3 people

2/3 cup milk

1 1/2 tbsp sugar

1 tsp yeast

2 cups flour

2 tbsp olive oil


2 tbsp butter

2 tsp parsley

2 tsp minced garlic

4 potatoes

Olive oil

1/2 flank steak

4 shallots

1 tsp dried rosemary

1 pinch chili powder

1/2 cup tomato sauce

2 cups beef stock

Salt & pepper

4 slices mozzarella


Stand mixer

Dough hook


4 glass jars


Pastry brush

Step 1/4

Combine the warm milk, sugar, and yeast in a stand mixer with a dough hook for 5 minutes, then add in the flour and olive oil. Mix until the dough is combined, then cover with a wet towel and let sit in a warm place for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the melted butter, minced garlic, and parsley in a small bowl. Save for later.

Step 2/4

Brown the diced potatoes in a frying pan with olive oil for about 5 minutes, then set aside in a bowl. Slice the flank steak into thin strips and add it to the frying pan, searing on both sides. Afterwards, add to the bowl with the potatoes. Next, fry the shallots until browned, then add in the dried rosemary, chili powder, tomato sauce, and beef stock. Let simmer until reduced to about half. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Set aside.

Step 3/4

Divide the bread into 4 equal portions, roll them out slightly, and add the mozzarella cheese to the center. Then, form into a ball and let rest for 5 minutes. Press down after until almost flat and use your scissors to cut the sides like in the video. Place them on a baking sheet, brush with the butter & garlic mixture, and press the glass jars into the center of each one. Pour the beef stew into each jar, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 35 minutes at 350 °F.

Step 4/4

Remove from the oven and carefully take off the aluminum foil. Then pour the stew into the center of each bread bowl using a hot pad. Dig in and enjoy!
