Preparation

Step 1

Cut beef into stew size pieces.

Chop onion and carrots. The carrots should be chopped pretty thick.

Fry beef and onion in a pot with some butter/oil until beef has gotten lightly browned.

Pour a thin layer of flour over the beef and onion, stir.

Pour in water so that it just covers the beef .

Season with about 1.5-2 teaspoons of salt, 10-15 whole allspice and 5-7 bay leaves then add the carrots.

Let simmer under lid for at least 1,5 hours. I prefer to let it simmer about 2-3 hours.

Taste stew a few times while it simmers to check if additional seasoning is needed, or extra water needs to be added.

Peel and boil potatoes.

Add boiled potatoes just before serving.
