Lunch: Beef a la Lindström with mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, pickled red cabbage and salad. Alas, no egg.

Recipe:

Chopped beef à la Lindstrom or Biff à la Lindström is a Swedish dish with Russian influences. It is thought to have been brought to Sweden in the mid-1800s by one Hendrik Lindström, who may have invented it or learned to make it in Russia. From Sweden it has spread all over the world.

 To serve 4:

500 g (1 lb) ground beef

1/2 cup minced onions

1/2 cup cooked or canned beets, diced

1/3 cup capers

1 tsp salt

1/8 tsp white pepper

1/2 cup melted butter

1/2 cup ice water

3 tbs butter

 

Mix together all ingredients but the 3 tbs butter.

Shape into 4 patties. Melt the 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet and sauté the patties in it until the beef has reached your preferred stage of doneness.

 Fry 4 eggs and serve the patties with the eggs on top.
