How to make it

  • Brown the meat; remove from pan
  • Add onions and fry slowly until golden (some people also add tomatoes and/or mushrooms at this stage although it is not traditional)
  • Return the meat to the pan
  • Pour in the beer
  • Add all of the spices and mix well
  • Slather the bread slices with mustard and place, mustard side down on the top of the pan
  • Turn down the heat and cover
  • Cook on low heat for as long as you can. The longer you cook, the more tender the meat. Try for at least 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve over Belgian Fries or mashed potatoes

    AMAZING RECIPE! I'm a born and raised California girl with a German boyfriend who has a fondness for Belgian food- I've made this a couple times now following the instructions as is and it turns out absolutely amazing! Really full of flavor and comforting, it's become a favorite in our home :)

    Hi Cabin, I've tried it with a variety of different mustards actually. I generally just use a yellow mustard though. I don't add a lot so it doesn't affect the flavour too much, just adds a bit of a kick. If you like spicy you can also add a bit of cayenne or paprika but this is not authentic.

    I can't get a handle on what this tastes like. At the same time it sounds very good. I will have to make it. Thanks for the post.
    Do you use Dijon or yellow mustard?
