NYT Cooking: This hearty, warming beef and onion stew is flavored with Belgian beer, bay leaves and sweet paprika. A variation on a traditional Flemish carbonnade, it’s rich and homey but still lively, with a ruddy color from the paprika. The very large quantity of onions adds sweetness, and also helps make the sauce velvety soft. Serve it over potatoes, noodles or polenta.
I ♥ Belgian beers - the very best in the world . and AVL has just the place to indulge that . the great Belgian Beer Bar at the Thirsty Monk! (lower basement level - downtown location on Patton Avenue)
