Directions

  1. Dredge the meat in the flour. In a Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat. Brown meat in butter, then add the onions and fry until glazed. Stir in water and vinegar. Season with thyme, bay leaves, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Mix in the beer. Spread mustard over bread, then add the bread and the carrots to the meat. Cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Mix in the brown sugar (two tablespoons is a minimum! A lot of people prefer more).

i'm from flanders, and i've got to say: this tastes pretty authentic. i still made a couple of changes though: - i add the carrots at the same time as the onions - i've added 2 cloves for the beer i use "westmalle dubbel", a red-brown trappist beer, 7% alcohol. i also don't add as much sugar, the beer is quite sweet and makes it redundant

I was skeptical about the bread with mustard, but I followed the recipe anyway. This turned out well. The brown sugar gave it a nice sweet taste. I will consider adding potatoes to it next time.

I e-mailed this recipe to my son who lives in Belgium, and he fixed it for us when we visited him there recently. It was delicious. I didn't think I would like that much onion it the stew, but it was flavorful.

This was very good. I added mushrooms and brocolli. The sauce is delicious.

I took this to a party and it received rave reviews! I was a little worried about how much onion was in the recipe, but it added wonderful flavor! I didn't have any bread, so I chopped up a potato and added that. Will definitely make again!

Good flavor. I added potatoes instead of the bread slice and my family loved it.
