We’ve never done any savoury recipes here on Chocablog, so I’m thrilled that Fred Ponnavoy, head chef of Gü Chocolate Puds agreed to share his “Gü-lash” receipe with us. Fred made this as part of the Gü dinner we had last week, and it really is quite delicious.


(Serves 4 people)

  • 1.2kg of diced beef (casserole)
  • 3 sliced onions
  • 2 sliced red pepper
  • 2 sliced carrots
  • 5 chopped garlic cloves
  • 2 glass of red wine (strong like Merlot)
  • 2 litre of beef stock
  • 1 tsp. of hot paprika
  • 2tsp of sweet paprika
  • Salt & pepper
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp. of flour
  • 4 tbsp. of rapeseed oil
  • 70g of dark chocolate (62%)
  • 1 pinch of curry spice
  • 1 pinch of chilli powder
  • 1 pinch of ground cardamom


Slowly cook in a pan the onions, garlic, red pepper & carrots together until they have soften using two tablespoon of oil, this should take approximately 15minutes. Remove from the pan and keep aside.

Pre heat the pan with the remaining oil and lightly caramelised the beef, add all the spices and the seasoning. Sprinkle the flour on top and stir well.

Add the red wine and reduce by 2/3, put the vegetables back in the pan & pour some of the beef stock to cover the meat.

Cook at the simmering point for at least 3 hours, if needed add more beef stock to keep the Gü-lash moist.

Check the seasoning and add the chocolate just before serving,stir well.

Enjoy with gnocchi & fresh parsley
