There are many versions of Hutspot, this one was from Audrey Hepburn's family. She was born in the Flemish part of Belgium, hence the Dutch name. It was originally only the vegetables, but when times were good, meat would be added. This version is "met Klapstuk" (with beef). It can also be eaten with Rookworst (a Dutch smoked sausage) or with bacon.

How to Make Audrey Hepburn's Hutspot


  1. Put 1 cup of water into a pot. Add beef, lightly peppered and salted, and cook over low heat until it is tender - about 1 hour. Remove meat, tent with foil and set aside.
  2. Increase heat to medium and stir to thicken gravy. Pour gravy over meat and cover with the foil to keep warm.
  3. While meat cooks, place potatoes in a pot and add water to just cover potatoes. Add carrots and onions. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, cover pan, and cook until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Mash veggies into a puree, adding salt and pepper.
  4. To serve, place vegetable puree on a platter, cover with sliced meat and gravy. Have mustard on table for people to help themselves.
