This is my son, Jon, favorite stew. I know he is waiting for the cool weather and rains to come as that is when I make it.

I usually use a pressure cooker when I make this, but I will post the recipe for just using the stove.

How to Make Scandinavian Beef Stew


  • 1Saute mushrooms in a little butter, remove from pan and set aside.
  • 2Brown the meat in remaining butter. Add salt and pepper. Remove meat.
  • 3Add the onions and cook until transparent. Add the meat back in.
  • 4Add the allspice, myrtle leaf, and bouillion.
  • 5Cook covered until meat is tender, on a medium low fire. Add more liquid if needed.
  • 6Mix the flour and water together ( do this even before I start the stew, I add the flour and water together in a jar and shake it, then shake again before I add it to the stew. That way I don't have any lumps.) Add slowly to stew and stir constantly until thick.
  • 7Lightly stir in the mushrooms.
  • 8Take off stove and stir in the sour cream slowly.
  • 9Return to low heat until hot...DO NOT LET IT BOIL or the sour cream will cruddle.
  • 10Serve over a baked potatoes or noodles or boiled potatoes
