Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium high heat, brown the meat on all sides in the butter or margarine. Add 4 cups of the water and bring to a boil. Add the onion, salt and ground black pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer for one hour.
  2. Add the carrots, celery and potatoes and simmer for another 1 1/2 hours. Then combine the flour and remaining 1/2 cup water in a separate small bowl, forming a thin paste. Add this to the soup, stirring well and simmer for 15 more minutes.

Have to have allspice and rutabaga along with the beef, carrots, onions, celery and potatoes. Whole allspice not ground although ground does work but clouds the liquid. Forget the flour. Both of my parents were 100 percent Finn. Without allspice and rutabaga its not mojakka.

Personally, I adore mojakko (unless it's kalamojakka, ask an American Finn about that), but mojakko isn't eaten in Finland. It's kind of the Finnish-American equivalent of green beer.

My mother and grandmother always added whole allspice to the broth instead of cracked pepper. Also you can add carrots and/or rutabaga. It is the essence of comfort food on a cold winter day!
