Flemish Beef and Beer Stew
(Carbonnades a la Flammande)

Carbonnades are made with bacon and dark-colored beer. This is delicious over hot, buttered egg noodles.

Ingredients

  • 1 (1 1/2 pound) boneless beef chuck or round steak, 1 inch thick
  • 1/4 pound bacon
  • 4 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (12 or 16 ounce) can light or dark beer
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Minced parsley
  • Hot cooked noodles

Instructions

  1. Cut beef into 1/2-inch slices; cut slices into 2-inch strips.
  2. Cut bacon into 1/4-inch pieces; fry in Dutch oven until crisp. Remove bacon with slotted spoon; drain. Pour off fat and reserve.
  3. Cook and stir onions and garlic in 2 tablespoons of the reserved bacon fat until onion is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove onions.
  4. Cook and stir beef in remaining bacon fat until brown, about 15 minutes.
