Autumn softness in Belgium

A real enchantment of colors...

A real enchantment of colors...

Before the white of winter sets in, nature gets warm colors.

The Arboretum of Tervuren, near Brussels, gathers more than 700 different species of trees, coming from all over the world on a 120 hectares domain which every year is adorned with a thousand and one colors when autumn is approaching.

Carbonade Flammande

Carbonade Flammande

4 PEOPLE
1H10
_

- 1,5kg of beef collar
- 3 carrots
- 2 onions
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 10g of butter
- 20g of brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 50cl of Flemish brown beer
- 1 bouquet garni
- 3 slices of gingerbread


1. First, chop the two onions and the garlic. Fry them on a low heat in the bottom of a pot with the butter.

2. As soon as they start to brown, add the beef. Then increase the heat.

3. When the meat starts to cook on all sides, add the sugar while stirring. A juice should form.

4. Cut the carrots into slices and add them to the pot, then pour in the flour and add the chopped bouquet garni. Stir regularly.

5. Pour in the beer. Crumble the gingerbread which will dissolve little by little in the mixture. Stir regularly.

6. The mixture should reduce, but the sauce should be thick.

Our little tip: Make your taste buds travel by accompanying your Carbonade Flamande with fries... Belgian, of course!
