How to Cook French-Style Meat

French-style meat is a dish that actually doesn’t relate to France in any way. It’s also known as veal Orloff. But no matter what we call it, the meat roasted with cheese and sauce remains a favorite dish for many.

5-Minute Crafts is offering you a simple recipe that can easily be changed and adapted as per your own taste.

Kitchen utensils

In order to cook French-style meat, you’ll need:

  • A cutting board

  • A knife

  • A coarse or fine grater

  • A baking dish or baking sheet


  • 1 pound of beef

  • 3 to 4 onions

  • 7 ounces of semi-hard cheese

  • Mayo

How to cook it

  • Cut the meat into thin slices.

  • Spread them out evenly on a baking dish.

  • Cut the onions in thin circles.

  • Place them evenly on the meat.

  • Grate the cheese on a coarse grater.

  • Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the meat and onions.

  • Cover the cheese with an even layer of mayo.

  • Bake the meat in the oven preheated to 350°F for 30 to 40 minutes. A rosy crust means the dish is ready.

  • Serve hot.


  • The onions can be replaced with thinly sliced potatoes.

  • Mayo can be replaced with béchamel sauce, sour cream, cream, or a creamy-mayo sauce.

  • Don’t salt the dish — it becomes quite salty thanks to the cheese.

  • The beef can be replaced with veal or pork.

  • Opt for meat that matches your personal preferences. Using fillet is the best option; marbled meat can also be a good choice.

  • Cheeses like Tilsit and Gouda suit this dish perfectly.
