In Sweden, stewing beef is often replaced with venison, bison or reindeer.
Melt the butter in a cast-iron pot over high heat. Add the beef and fry until browned on all sides.
Add the carrots, onions, beef stock, bay leaves, peppercorns, and ground cloves. Fry for a few minutes, and then stir in the heavy cream, water, and then cover.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 60-90 minutes, or until the meat is tender. Stir occasionally.
Right before serving, add the cream cheese to thicken the stew base, and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste
Fill half of a large pot with water. Over high heat, bring the water to a boil, and add the broccoli. Boil for a couple of minutes, and then strain the broccoli in a colander. In a large serving bowl, toss the broccoli with butter, and season with salt and pepper.
Serve the beef stew with a touch of parsley, and broccoli on the side. Enjoy!
