Well hello world!  Our group this month decided to cook foods from Sweden.  The first thing that came to my mind of course was Swedish Meatballs.  But I wanted to try something a little less ordinary.  I was watching the Rachel Ray show one morning this week and she prepared a dish called Swedish Sailor's Beef and Potato Casserole.  I knew that was it for me!!

First I browned the meat.  I used bottom round steak just as Rachel suggested, but I think next time I would just go with top round steak.

Next you saute up some onions with a few seasonings and butter,

then you layer sliced potatoes, then top with onions, then meat, and repeat repeat.  Pour a bottle of light beer (I used Sam Adams Summer Ale) over it, cover it and let it cook in the oven for 2 1/2 hours on 275.  As you can see, I could have used a little more steak to top it with, but for just the two of us I was trying to get buy with six slices.

Delicious and hearty! The beer makes it tender and juicy.  You can cut the steak with a fork.  I served with a slice of cantaloupe and it made a delicious meal for us.
You can get the recipe here:

Hurry over to and see what delicious recipes the other ladies prepared for their Swedish visit.  Next month is Tonga.  Come join us!!
