Flemish beef stew with potatoes


  • 3 lb diced braising beef
  • 3 finely sliced onions
  • 3 lb baby potatoes, washed
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 L of lager
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Salt & pepper


1 Peel the potatoes and set aside.

2 Heat the stewpot to 2/3 of the maximum power of your stove, and test the heat using the “water drop” technique.

3 Brown the beef in several stages if necessary, remove, then brown the onions.

4 Put back the meat in the stewpot and add the flour. Lower the heat and stir so that nothing sticks to the edges.

5 Once the flour is roasted, add the sugar and stir for 2 more minutes.

6 Add the beer, 2 cups of water and the thyme.

7 Put the lid on the stewpot and cook for 2 hours and 30 minutes on low heat.

8 30 minutes before the end of cooking, add the potatoes.

9 Adjust seasoning to taste.



Tip: Add some chopped toasted rye bread when serving.
