This is not exactly your standard Memorial Day meal but it’s what I had left in the fridge until the next grocery supply run. Even so, Kalops is remarkably delicious, with melt in your mouth vegetables and meat so tender, it falls apart at the slightest nudge.
I used to be a frequent patron of this Swedish restaurant several years ago, and this was when I discovered Kalops. I ordered it for delivery often enough to be considered a regular and when I moved, I decided to learn how to make it. The allspice gives it its signature flavor, setting it apart from other beef stews and was the main reason the spice made its way to my spice rack. You can find allspice here and you can use either whole or ground, although whole tastes better to me.
It’s supposedly served with beets but I omitted that part. No matter how you choose to enjoy it though, the important thing is, you will enjoy it!
