Stewed Beef & Potatoes Recipe

Жаркое or zharkoye, aka ‘Stewed Beef and Potatoes’ – a delicious Ukrainian and Eastern European comfort food that I ate so often growing up! It’s made with fall-apart braised beef and potatoes in an aromatic tomato sauce with just a sprinkle of dill on top.

Every time I make this beef recipe in my kitchen, it brings back warm and delicious memories of my parents making this at home. Even though my mom usually made lunch and dinner in our house, my dad was the one who always made this dish. I love to enjoy this dish with a side of Russian pickles, marinated tomatoes and sour cream.

Serving Ukrainian Beef Stew

My family loves this stewed beef recipe with a side of pickled tomatoes and pickles! The sour and refreshing taste of the pickles goes very well with the rich potatoes and beef. I also like to have a little bit of sour cream on the side. And, don’t forget to sprinkle fresh dill over the top for even more flavor!
