Meat in a Pot with Mushrooms
For this dish, the cookware is very important. The best taste you’ll get is by using an ovenproof clay pot (with lid). If you don’t have one, you can use any deep ovenproof pan.

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms

  1. Cut beef into ~1 inch pieces and chop 1/2 of the onion.
  2. Put beef, onion, and bay leaves into the pot.
  3. Add salt, pepper, ~1/2 cup of water, cover it, and put everything in a not preheated oven.
  4. Bake about 45 minutes at 400-450F.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, cut potatoes and carrot; add a little bit vegetable oil and salt.
  6. Add this mixture to the pot.
  7. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  8. Cut mushrooms and the rest of the onion.
  9. Saute them in separate skillets in vegetable oil until golden-brown.
  10. Add the onion to the skillet with the mushrooms and cook them together a few more minutes.
  11. Add the mixture to the clay pot.
