Swedish Beef Stew

Swedish Beef Stew (Kalops)


I love Fall and comfort food! This stew takes a while, but it’s easy to make and so worth the wait. You can either cook it in a large dutch oven or do what I do, use a crock pot. That way you don’t have to monitor for over 4 hours. Enjoy!


  • 2 pounds of stew beef, cubed
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 yellow onions, cut into wedges
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon ground allspice
  • Salt, white pepper and black pepper to taste


1. Melt the butter in a dutch oven or a large frying pan. Over medium high heat, brown the meat well for about 5 minutes and then sprinkle with the flour and stir to combine well.
