Open Beef Lindstrom Sandwich

This our version of the popular Swedish Burger called Biff a la Lindstrom.

Biff a la Lindstrom

This dish is named after Henrik Lindström, raised by a Swedish family in St. Petersburg and later became a prominent industrialist. He often ate at the Hotel Witt in Southeast Sweden, and he taught the hotel chef how to make this beef dish with capers and beetroot. It became a hit across the country.

You will need:

  • 500 grams ground beef
  • 100 grams pickled beetroot, drained and cut into cubes
  • 2 tbsp capers, drained and chopped roughly
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp cooking oil

To serve

  • 400 grams small potatoes, washed and cut into small wedges
  • sliced rye bread
  • diced pickled beetroot
  • fresh parsley


  1. Wash and cut potatoes into small wedges. Place in a pot with water and let it boil for 15 minutes. Drain and set aside. If you have some leftover boiled potatoes, you can also use them.
  2. In a bowl, add all the ingredients (except cooking oil), then mix them. Don’t over mix the meat mixture as they will become too dense and tough.
  3. Divide the meat mixture into four and shape each portion into flat burger patties. Place in a frying over medium heat. Fry the meat for 4 minutes per side until nicely colored. Once they are done, place them on a plate and set them aside.
  4. Using the same frying pan, add the potatoes and fry until crisp and golden.
  5. Serve with whole-grain rye bread, potatoes, pickled beetroot, and fresh parsley.
