Karjalan Paisti - Karelian Hot Pot / Karelsk Gryterett

Karelian Hot Pot or Karjalan Paisti in Finnish is a traditional meat stew from the region of Karelia (now split between Finland and Russia). It’s commonly made with a combination of pork and beef but other proteins, like lamb, can be used. Finnish hot pot is typically seasoned with black peppercorns, allspice and bay leaves.

This Finnish stew is made in one large pot over low heat, once everything is chopped, it’s a real hands-off recipe. Serve Karelian Hot Pot as the Finns do, with mashed potatoes and cranberry or lingonberry preserves on the side.
