Speedy Beef Stew From Belgium
From Belgium comes the beef stew known as Carbonnade
Flamande, a classical main dish richly endowed with onions
and often flavored with beer. In the easy to-make recipe which
follows, canned roast beef with gravy reduces the cooking time
and work greatly without sacrificing the traditional good taste,
and apple juice or cider supplies the typical subtle flavoring.
The canned roast beef with gravy which is the mainstav of
the dish is fully cooked and nicely seasoned as it comes from
the can. That means that the ingredients to be measured are
few, and the only cooking required is simple and auick: the
sauteing of the onions, the heating and thickening or the stew
? a matter of about 20 minutes. That makes the dish a treat
for the home cook as well as the diners, because of the work
that doesn 't have to be done!
Traditionally Carbonnade Flamande is served with whole
boiled potatoes dressed with butter or margarine and sprinkled
with parsley or chives. A green vegetable, crisp salad, and
home-style bread, will complete a delightful main course.
