Sailor's beef is one of the great classics of Swedish cuisine. It gets its name from the fact that it can be cooked in one pot on a ship’s galley, although it has become a popular dish now throughout Sweden.
Kåldomar (stuffed cabbage rolls) are a great Swedish classic often served as a midweek meal, but also served as part of a Christmas buffet. They were first introduced into Sweden at the beginning of the 18th century after Karl XII invaded Turkey. His soldiers took stuffed vine leaves back to Sweden and replaced the vine leaves with cabbage leaves.
