Bidos – Sami Party Food

1,1 lb. / 500 g filet of reindeer or reindeer steak
(other big game or even beef can be used
of course but then the authenticity is lost)
4 tablespoons flour
2 pt. / 10 dl water
4 potatoes
2 carrots
1/2 onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 servings

Cut the meat into cubes, and place in a casserole.

[2] Make flour thickening by mixing flour and about 3 ml of water (cold). Pour flour thickening and remaining water over the meat. Bring to the boil, stirring to avoid lumps in the sauce.

[3] Peel potatoes and cut them in half. Peel carrots and cut them into thick slices. Chop the onion. Put the potatoes and vegetables in the pot and cook until potatoes are tender.

[4] Season with salt and pepper. Do you want a darker sauce can add a few drops of caramel.

Server bidos with freshly baked wholemeal bread, butter and cranberries.

NB! To get nice colour and good taste on the dish, it is important to pour the flour thickening over the meat before starting to cook it.

Tip: Leek and other vegetables can be added to the casserole for a variation. But then it is no longer a simple and authentic bidos but tastes incredibly delicious anyway.
