Stoverij is a stew of beef, onions, local beer and spices such as thyme, laurel, pepper and salt. In the Ghent version, a slice of bread with Tierenteyn mustard is also used, which adds spice and ensures the binding of the sauce. The real Ghent stoverij also includes kidneys and liver, which give it an extra rich flavour. With lots of time and love, all this becomes a tasty stew, preferably served with chips and beer. The smell alone makes your mouth water.
There are many restaurants and brasseries in Ghent serving authentic Ghent stoverij. Ask the waiter for a suitable beer suggestion and let yourself be seduced by a regional dish that will never lose its flavour.
