This traditional stew from Scandinavia is a cousin of Irish stew. The name probably indicates that sailors, when they come ashore, appreciate a change from fish! In Scandinavia, this might be offered with rye bread and butter, dill pickles and a salad.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
750g stewing beef
750g old potatoes, peeled and thickly sliced
2 large onions, thickly sliced
500ml boiling water
1 small bay leaf
2 teaspoons salt
6 black peppercorns
60g butter
parsley, chopped, to garnish

Method

  1. Remove excess fat from beef and cut into bite-size cubes. Place beef, potatoes and onions in a pan with remaining ingredients. Bring to the boil, and remove any scum that comes to surface. Reduce heat to low, cover pan and simmer for 1½–2 hours or until meat is very tender and potatoes are reduced to a mash. Stir well to combine potatoes with gravy. Adjust seasoning, discard bay leaf and serve sprinkled with chopped parsley.
