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.
