DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pan or Dutch oven, heat the butter or oil over medium high heat; season the roast all over with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  • Brown on all sides, then remove to a plate.
  • Add the chopped vegetables and brown them also, stirring often so they do not stick.
  • Return the roast to the pot along with the tomato paste, water, bay leaf, allspice, and caraway seed.
  • Cover tightly, reduce heat to low, and cook until roast is fork tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, adding water as necessary.
  • Remove roast and keep warm.
  • Puree sauce with an immersion blender or pour into a regular blender (remove allspice and bay leaf if desired).
  • Stir in sour cream and/or lemon juice, if desired and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.
