How to make it
- Pour boiling water to completely cover the dried mushrooms and prunes in a bowl. Leave for 30 minutes, then drain well.
- Toss the cubed pieces of beef, pork and kielbasa in the flour. Set aside.
- Gently fry the onions in the oil in a dutch oven or a heavy pot, for about 10 minutes. Remove from pot and set aside.
- In the same pot, brown the meat in batches for about 5 minutes, or until browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add the Sherry wine to the pan and simmer, scarping the bottom of the pan, for about 2 minutes.
- Add the meat and onions back to the pan. Stir in tomatoes, cloves, cinnamon, dill, mushrooms, prunes and a well rinsed sauerkraut. Make sure the sauerkraut is well rinsed, otherwise the stew could come out too salty. Season with black pepper.
- Add the beef stock to the pot and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 2 hours, or until the meat is very tender. Remove the lid during the last 30 minutes of cooking to let the liquid evaporate, as the stew should be thick.
- Serve hot, sprinkled with chopped parsely and accompanied by baby boiled potatoes, if desired.
