"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." — TasteKing

canola oil, divided
2 1/2 pounds
beef stew meat, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
potatoes, peeled and cubed

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!
SO delish!!!! Substituted the parsley for cilantro. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly & YUM! Our 4 year old even ate it up! Thanks for sharing!
I halved the recipe for my husband and me and we loved it. It reminds me of my Austrian grandmother's cooking. This will go into my permanent files. Thanks!
I wasn't sure how the ingredients would work together, but this turned out to be delicious squared. Don't skimp or substitute on the spices that are called for, as they make all the difference. I added in a sweet potato because I didn't have enough regular potato and I only used as much broth as was necessary to cover the ingredients.
