Flemish Beef Stew

February/March 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (198 votes)

For this slow-cooker interpretation of Carbonnades Flamandes, a Flemish stew made with beer, if you can't find a brown ale, use a strong, dark beer (but not a stout).

I ditched the caraway seeds and added a little celery... i also used red ale instead of brown ale which is a little sweeter... it was awesome! I served it in a bowl and topped it with some pureed cauliflower which my boyfriend loved... it has a mashed potato texture and quality but keeps the dish low calorie.

easy recipe

Delicious!

I bought carraway seeds just for this recipe, then I forgot to use them! Everything else I did was exactly as the recipe directed. I used Newcastle Brown Ale for my beer, and sliced baby portabella mushrooms. We all loved it! I had no trouble with the sauce being bitter.

I love crockpot meals

I read the comments before making this dish. Since one reader said the caraway seeds could cause bitterness, I avoided the caraway seeds altogether. However, my sauce was STILL bitter. Luckily I discovered this before I added it to the meat, so I didn't waste a lot of money, but was still disappointed with the time I wasted. Perhaps there is some reaction with the beer that caused it to turn bitter? I used Tucher.

I loved the simplicity of the recipe, but the caraway was too overwhelming. I did add potatoes to the mix and was glad for it. I will probably make it again but without the caraway and with more veggies, like peas.
