  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp oil


  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp oil, if needed
  • 3 cups water

the rest-

  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 2 1/2 pounds potatoes (7-8 med/large potatoes)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • fresh dill optional

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Peel potatoes and cut into large chunks (3 to 4 pieces per potato). Cover potatoes with cold water, set aside.
  • Slice red pepper in thick strands, finely chop onion, slice carrot; set veggies aside.
  • Cut meat into about 1/2” – 3/4" pieces, pat meat dry. Combine the garlic powder, Lawry’s seasoning, pepper and salt; season meat. Refrigerate for at least an hour. (I like to do mine first thing in the morning, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.)
  • Heat 2 Tbsp oil, once oil is hot, add meat. Sauté meat 5-6 minutes (stirring frequently) until meat is golden.
  • Transfer meat to casserole dish. Add the red pepper to casserole dish.
  • In the same skillet, add onions until tender (add the additional oil if needed). Add carrots to onions and sauté until tender. Add the minced garlic, stir well. Add ketchup and sour cream, stir. Whisk in the flour. Add the water, salt and pepper and stir, bring mixture to a soft boil.
  • Drain the potatoes and add to the casserole dish. Add bay leaf. Pour the vegetable mix over everything in the casserole dish. Lightly stir. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes.
  • Remove dish from oven, and mix well. Bake another 8-10 minutes, until potatoes are cooked through.
  • Add fresh herbs before serving. Mix and enjoy hot.
