Swedish kallops

The word Kallops is pronounced like collapse, if you swap the a and o sound. It originates in the French word Escalope. It has little to do with thin, bashed steaks tho', so where that comes from, I have no idea.
This recipe gets its special flavour from the Caribean 'pepper corn' called allspice, which has a unique flavour that is very hard to describe - it really is like a mixture of 'all spices'.
