Flemish stew, which is served at cafetaria in Belgium is a traditional stew. The meat, prepared in beer, melts on your tongue. Serve this with fries!
Slowly baking in the oven, delicious smells in the kitchen. Tender meat stewed in beer that melts on your tongue. A delicious taste combined with salty fries. I understand why Flemish stew with fries is so tasty. At my house the last bit was scraped off the pan. Approved!
It’s a good taste!
