Flemish stew

Recipe: Flamante Carbonnade

Flemish stew recipe, delicious beef cheek cooked in beer for a long time and gently, we loved tasting this very tasty meat. I like beef which cooks slowly and for a long time, I like paprika which will slowly develop all its flavor. A very nice recipe that comes from Belgium, our cousins and neighbors, of course the choice of beer is important. You can use several pieces of beef, but be careful to adapt the cooking of the meat.
