This is a traditional German Stew served for Halloween. Its hearty flavors go perfect with the chilly nights of the harvest festival. Serve the stew in bowls with a quartered beet egg on top. Beet eggs are hard-cooked eggs prepared in a vinegar and beet juice mixture to add a sweet flavor and purple color to the eggs.

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and onion, and cook until softened and translucent; remove from pan. Pour 2 tablespoons canola oil into Dutch oven. While this heats, mix the beef with salt and pepper. Sear the beef in batches until browned all over, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in caraway seeds and flour, cook until flour is incorporated and the caraway seed is fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in beef broth; add bay leaves, sugar, nutmeg, and onion mixture. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the meat is tender, about 2 hours.
  3. Stir in the potatoes and carrots; continue cooking until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Stir together the cornstarch and water; stir into the stew along with the parsley. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.

Easy and absolute comfort! Consider not adding salt to the meat browning step if you use a packaged broth instead of homemade. Adjust the salt to taste at the end.

Simple and delicious stew recipe. At first I wasn't sure about all the caraway but it takes on a mellower flavor after simmering all day. I cooked my stew in the crockpot. I browned the beef and cooked the onions as per the recipe and dumped it into the crock. I ommited 2 cups of the broth and cooked it on high the first two hours then kicked it to low and let it go all day and it came out fabulous. Lovely autumn dinner!
