    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    DH and I enjoyed this flavorful, easy to make recipe from the January 2009 Bon Appetit. Carbonnade is a Belgian beef stew flavored with beer, onions, and brown sugar. Bon Appetit substituted chicken thighs for this twist on an old favorite. Serve over egg noodles.

      This is delicious! It tastes like you let it simmer all day, but it just takes about an hour. Really loved the flavor that the allspice added to this dish. Was perfect with the onions and brown sugar. My sauce didn't really get thick, but that didn't bother me. I just drug the noodles through the juices and devoured it. :) Thanks for sharing! Made for Photo Tag!
