Flemish Beef Stew

February/March 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (174 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).

There should be a change in this recipe, It has only cooked for two hours and the stock is already bitter! But I will choke it down some how when it is done. I paid way too much for the meat (Whole Foods Market) and the beer to throw it away!!!

I made this without caraway seeds, with potatoes, and with a stout instead of just a dark beer.

It was amazing. I used fresh garlic cloves and fresh onion, peppercorns, and added carrots and potatoes as well. It was very thick, and very delicious. Also made it in the crock pot.

This is a wonderful, comforting dish. Use Guinness beer to give it a richer flavor.

Incredibly good. I really

Incredibly good.
I really can't believe a serving is under 300 calories!
I don't have a slowcooker so I used my cast-iron dutch oven and put it in the oven at 250 degrees to simmer away.
I wonder if the people who had a problem with bitterness used the wrong beer? I am not a beer drinker so I went to a local store that specializes in "fancy" beers. They helped me pick out a Flemish beer - Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale - which was made in Belgium. It worked out very well.
Oddly enough, my butcher had a sale on bison chuck that was cheeper than the beef chuck and I bought it. It worked very well.
Making this stew was how I entertained myself during the big snow storm that hit Philadelphia on Feb. 6, 2010.

My husband and I love this! My mom also made it and thought it was bitter. I have never had this problem.
