Bosanski Lonac (Bosnia)

Bosanski Lonac (Bosnia)

Ingredients
  • 2-3 tsp oil
  • 1 yellow onion (diced)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves whole (peeled and pressed)
  • 2 pounds beef stew chunks (diced)
  • 3 carrots (large, diced)
  • ½ pound green beans (cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 3 yellow potatoes (large, diced)
  • 3 tomatoes (large, skinned and diced, or 8oz can)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
Instructions
  1. Put the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, add the onion, garlic, and beef stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes. You can add a little water here and there to keep it simmering.
  2. Lower the temperature to medium, add carrots and continue simmering. Every few minutes add another ingredient: green beans, then potatoes, then tomatoes and sugar, all while adding a little bit of water in between.
  3. By this time the meat has been simmering for about 30 minutes, and vegetables a little less. Add 3-4 cups of water (so it covers the ingredients, plus a little more). Add salt and pepper. Mix. Cover with lid, leaving a little bit uncovered. Lower the temperature to low, and leave to cook for 90 minutes.
