Flemish Beef Stew Cooked In Beer Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

4 lb beef stew meat, 2 cubes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp flour, to 3 tb
3 tbsp unsalted butter, to 4 tb
3 large onions, thinly sliced
24 oz belgian beer
2 sprigs thyme, to 3 sprigs
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tbsp red currant jelly
1 tbsp red wine vinegar

Recipe Preparation

1. Season beef cubes with salt and pepper and coat with flour. Shake
off any excess.

2. In a large, heavy skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over high
heat until hot, but not smoking. Add beef cubes and saute until
nicely browned on all sides. Work in batches so as not to crowd beef
cubes or they will steam instead of saute. Add another tablespoon of
butter, if needed. Transfer beef to a heavy Dutch oven.

3. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the same skiller over medium
heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned,
about 15 minutes. Combine onions and meat in Dutch oven.

4. Add beer to skillet. Raise heat to high and bring to a boil,
scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen any
browned bits.

5. Pour beer over meat. Add thyme and bay leaves. Simmer, covered,
over low heat until meat is very tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

6. Just before servig, stir in jelly and vinegar; simmer for 5
minutes. Remove thyme sprigs and bay leaves. Taste, adding more salt
and pepper if needed.

Food Tips of the Week

Diet tips

In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods. Although you can possibly buy low carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a baking tray. Once it is hard, grind it up in your food mill. To store, keep in a tupperware container.

* Don't skip meals Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carbohydrate diet needs more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy given by protein and fat is much slower acting.

Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)

The alliaceae family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not enough, definitive proof available, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so make sure you add them to your weight loss regime.
