Recipe by Alskann

This is a very simple, typical Swedish family stew that delivers a taste that is oh so satisfying. Make it in an enameled cast iron casserole or other oven safe dish because this goes into a very hot oven for quite a while. All the liquid gets absorbed and the casserole becomes good and crusty - but delicious!
