    Stoofvlees aka Flemish Stew recipe

    I've come over all Rick Stein and have tried to recreate Stoofvlees.

    Flemish stew is the national dish of Belgium and is an absolute corker. A small list of ingredients and seasoning and a lot of time go a long way. It goes by many names, Carbonade Flamande, as well as Stoofvlees, it's typically made with beef or pork cooked away with onions in a Belgian beer, typically a darker brown version. For an added sweet tang you'd typically add in a twist of brown sugar or a blob of red currant jelly. Anyhow, here's the recipe I've found works.

    • Sounds good! Is it ever used as a pie filling?

      • No, but that sounds like a genius idea. In the UK we have steak and ale pies, but a Belgian version. Mmmm

      • It’s a fantastic dish. Proper comfort food, but superb flavours if you get it right.

      • What would be a good substitute for Belgium beer? Not sure if it is currently available.
