Mojakka (pronounced MOY-a-kah) is a soup served in Finnish-American households in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Western Ontario. The principal ingredients are beef or fish and potatoes. Made with fish it is called kalamojakka (KAH-la-moy-a-kah), with beef it is lihamojakka (LEE-ha-moy-a-kah).



Autum is approaching!  time for that wonderful hearty fall food.  We'll start with some Finnish Mojakka

Finnish Style Mojakka
Submitted by: Lois
 "This soup recipe is a staple in any Finnish household. Serve with flat bread."  Original recipe yield: 6 to 8 servings.

 
INGREDIENTS:
3 pounds boneless beef roast
2 tablespoons margarine
4 1/2 cups water
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
4 potatoes, cubed
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
In a large pot over medium high heat, brown the meat on all sides in the butter or margarine. Add 4 cups of the water and bring to a boil. Add the onion, salt and ground black pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer for one hour.
Add the carrots, celery and potatoes and simmer for another 1 1/2 hours. Then combine the flour and remaining 1/2 cup water in a separate small bowl, forming a thin paste. Add this to the soup, stirring well and simmer for 15 more minutes.

Hey....how fitting!
I just watched Team Canada beat Finland to win the World Hockey Championship.
So much for hockey for a looooong time!
Typical sports "lock-out" looming.

Looks like the Fins can go home now and eat their soup, rather than report to  NHL training camps.
:F


Sorry if I hijacked your recipe, MT!
I'll whip up a batch as a consolation for the fallen Fins.
:wink:

Ah, well...  You can always tell a Finn, but you can't tell him much.

Hockey?! Heck, it's still baseball season, eh.  Say, Aren't the Twins something like 20 games up?  How are the Sox doing?   :wink:

Weird time of year.  Hocky, football, baseball, all of the highschool sports, and the walleyes, pike and muskies should be putting on the feed bag soon, while the lakes turn over, leaves change colors.  Man, what a busy time of year, no wonder we need hearty foods for al the energy we're using up.
