beef stew

back to basics, this was so simple, just took a little time.

i used

400 gr beef, round steak, cut to 2 cm cubes
200 gr buttom mushrooms, quartered
1 onion, finely minced
2 tbsp all purpose flour
black pepper to taste
2 tbsp vegetable oil

started by washing and quartering the mushrooms

then browned them in 1 tbsp oil on high heat. could have eaten these as they were...

next, took out the mushrooms, added the other tbsp oil and browned the meat on high heat, then added onion, sauteed until soft, then added flour and kept mixing until flour started getting brown. then added slowly 5 dl of boiling water, mixed well, turned the heat to low and simmered for 2 hrs. yes, really, for 2 hrs

after 2 hrs added the mushrooms and a generous amount of ground black pepper. boiled some potatoes as a side and served with lingonberries and mini gherkins. some might opt for some salt or soya sauce, but you know me, none was added
