Notes about this recipe

    Meltingly delicious, with a wonderful rich taste. Dark Belgian beer isn't that easy to come by, and according to the staff in my local beer shop would be an odd thing to cook with - last time I used Samuel Smith Winter Welcome Ale, which worked very well.

    Perfect comfort food for a chilly night. The total exceeds the sum of it's reasonably simple parts. I made a few minor tweaks firstly I cooked the onions for about 30 mins at low heat and at the end I took out most of the sauce and reduced it on the stovetop by about 2/3. I couldn't wait a day to eat it, but it was delicious right away. I can imagine it would be even better if I'd planned ahead. Update: made this again, this time a day ahead and it is fantastic! Forward planning was rewarded
