There was no crockpots or
micro wave ovens, back then.....

How to Make THREE MEAT STEW....(Karelian) from FINLAND

Step-by-Step

  • 1In 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!
  • 2It 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.
  • 3Remove 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.
