The menu balances modern and traditional cuisines that play on new flavours brought to you from Europe by the talented chef from Belgium.
Remove all the nerves from the tenderloin, leave a little bit of fat and cut into small cubes.
In a big frying pan on a medium high heat, add butter, thyme and rosemary; then pan fry the beef just enough to add colour, then add salt and pepper to taste. Move the beef into a tall cooking pot.
In the same frying pan, sautée the shallots and white onions and add them to the beef in the pot.
Put the same frying pan back on the stove on a medium heat and deglaze the pan with the Leffe Bruin (Belgian beer), and let it absorb all the flavours of the sautéed shallots, white onions and beef. While it is simmering add it to the beef.
Add the beef stock, the slice of toast with mustard and bay leaves and let it simmer for 35-45 minutes.
Serve with a side salad and, of course, with a dollop of mayonnaise and Belgian fries and with a chilled Leffe Bruin (Brown Belgian beer).
