Carbonnade à la flamande
My favorite Belgian recipe features one of Belgium's other great gifts to the culinary world: beer. Carbonnade flamande is Flemish beef stew in which beef and onions are simmered in Belgian ale until the meat is tender, the onions are sweet and the ale has cooked down into a rich, dark gravy. I imagine carbonnade was as popular in the 14th century as it is today.
