I used bacon grease for this as I didn't have the smoked salt pork, I used Guinness for dark beer, and at step 14, I sliced the french bread into 1 1/2 inch rounds then spread those with mustard. This was very good thank you, but I think the servings are a bit off-3 of us ate what was supposed to feed 8.
I'm just stew-recipe browsing, and hoah-boy, this one looks good! (The only reason I gave it less than five stars is because I haven't tried the recipe). Nonetheless, I have a good feeling about this recipe! The pork fat and mustard tell me reminds me of French tastes. and the Flemmish bier is going to make this stew. While I am not an expert on Flemmish or French cooking, this recipe looks too good to resist!
