I've had this recipe for quite a number of years. I won second place with it in a cooking contest sponsored by our local newspaper.


  • 2 pounds boneless chuck roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-1/2 cups beef broth
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon each dill seed, caraway seeds, paprika and salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Hot cooked rice
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, warmed


  1. In a Dutch oven, brown beef in oil. Add the beef broth, onions, garlic and seasonings. Cover and simmer for 2-1/2 hours or until beef is tender; reduce heat.
  2. Combine flour and water until smooth; gradually stir into the beef mixture. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add sour cream and heat through (do not boil). Serve over rice with sauerkraut on the side.
