How To Make three meat stew....(karelian) from finland

  • 1
    In a large, heavy casserole with lid, layer meats with the onions, salt,and allspice. Top with bay leaves. Cover tightly and bake at 275F. for 5 hours. Long slow cooking in the oven brings out the juices and flavor. Meat will be very tender and will, stew in it's own delicious juices!

    It is not necessary to add other broth,or water to the meat, unless the dish is not tightly well covered, and it starts to cook dry.
  • 3
    Remove bay leaves before serving. This broth is not thickened.!!!!! The stew is usually served with boiled new potatoes. Or your choice of mashed potatoes, rice.. or even toasted bread.
