How to Make Carbonnade Flamande
- Combine flour, salt, pepper and monosodium glutamate. Roll meat pieces in the mixture.
- Melt butter in a skillet. Add onions and cook until tender, but not brown. Remove onions; add beef and brown on all sides. Return onions to beef; add beer and remaining ingredients.
- Cover and cook over low heat for 2 hours or until meat is tender. If more liquid is needed, add more beer.
- Serve hot with mashed potatoes or noodles.
