Step 2: Ingredients:

  • 4.5 lbs Beef Round Steak (2kg)
  • 1.1 lbs Boston Butt or Pork Shoulder (0.5kg)
  • 3 lbs Potatoes (1.4kg)
  • 1.5 lbs Onion (700g)
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • ½ cup Lard (230g)
  • 4 tbsp Caraway Seeds (20g)
  • 3 tbsp Salt
  • 2½ tbsp Sweet Paprika (12g)
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 3 tbsp Dried Marjoram
  • Dried of Fresh Chili Pepper , optional
  • 1 can Beer , of your Choice (lager)
  • 10+ cups Water (2.5 litres+/0.6 gallon+)

Step 3: Directions:

1. In a cauldron (or a large pot) melt the lard. Add diced onion and sauté for about 5 minutes. Now add the meats that have been diced into bite size pieces. Let them brown while stirring occasionally.

2. Add sweet paprika, mix & let it cook for about a minute before adding water (about 4 cups/1litre), ½ of diced potatoes, caraway seeds, salt and 1 can of beer.

3. Cover with lid and let it cook (check occasionally, if it is cooking – simmering is better than boiling). From time to time check if there is enough water. If not, add more. Continue simmering.

4. About 1½ hour into cooking add the rest of the potatoes and more water (if needed). Bring to a boil and cook until the meat is soft.

5. 5-10 minutes before the end add minced garlic, tomato paste, marjoram and dried whole chili (optional). Taste it and season more if required.

6. Serve warm with a few slices of bread or over rice.
