    1. 1
      In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium high heat; brown beef, in batches. Transfer to plate. Add onions, caraway seeds, pepper and bay leaf; cook, stirring, for 1 minutes. Pour in beef stock; bring to boil, stirring to scrape up brown bits.
    2. 2
      Return beef and any accumulated juices to pan; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 2 hours or until beef is tender. Stir in vinegar, sugar and rind; cook uncovered, stirring often, for 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      In small bowl, stir together molasses, flour, ginger, cinnamon and cloves to make paste; stir in 2 tablespoons of the stew juices. Gradually whisk back into stew over medium high heat until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf, (Stew can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 2 days or frozen for up to 1 month.).
    4. 4
      RED CABBAGE: Meanwhile, in large saucepan, toss together cabbage, 1/2 cup water, vinegar, apples, brown sugar, butter and salt. Chop 1 of the onions and add to pan; toss well.
    5. 5
      Stick cloves into remaining onion; bury in cabbage mixture. Cover and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, for 1 1/2 hours or until cabbage is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Discard clove studded onion. (Can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 2 days, reheat gently.) Serve with stew. Makes 6 serving.

      The beef had a lot of flavor and was very tender. I did have to add more beef stock to it, due to the stock reducing by about half while cooking. Very good though. Thank you for sharing.

      We loved this. I love the unique (sweet-vinegary) flavor. It's a must try! I didn't change anything in the recipe.
