The Culprit

Here is the reason my hands, my coat and pretty much everything else in my hosue now smells like onions.


I sauteed 7 pounds of them last night




and 10 pounds of cut up blade steaks




And added 26 ounces of a Belgian Trapist Ale. To get Carbonade a la Flamanade. In all it made 7 quarts.

This afternoon I'm making 3 quarts of garlic smashed red potatoes. Last night I also made 2 - 9x13 pans of Berry-Apple Fantasy Pie.

I really hope the folks eating this enjoy it tonight.

The Carbonade is wonderful. It actually ends up being sort of sweet with the ale. I just hope they eat it all and I'm not left with leftovers for two weeks.

Might be a little messy going through the mail. I'll post a recipe tomorrow and you can make it at home. If you are not serving 24 it's pretty easy to make at home.

The oinions remind me vaguely of worms. ;)

The food sounds good. You need to come cook for us regularly.

Get me up there and I'd be glad to. I'm going to Seattle in March and I plan to pay back all the folks letting me stay on their couches/futons/floors with cooking.

Yo uare on your own with that one. My choices are limited since I can only drink white wines. The stew is somewhat sweet though because of the onions and the ale so that might give you something to go on.

If they don't I'll be sorely tempted to drive across the country to eat what they don't want... Looks and sounds DIVINE!!!

*yum*

Thanks for sharing, and for jump starting my saliva glands! ;)
