Greek Beef Stew (Styfado)

This is a classic, popular, melt in your mouth, comfort food, Greek Stew Recipe..:) with beef and onions sautéd in fresh tomatoes and a variety of different herbs and with a dash of tomato paste. As the winter weather is becoming stronger each day, I thought that this stew would be a great idea for today’s dinner.   Simple basically very similar to a one pot cooking recipe, just throw in all the ingredients in a large pot and your done. 🙂 

Ingredients:



1 kilo beef pieces

1 cup Olive Oil

2 Bay Leaves

20 Whole Baby Onions

2 tablespoon Sugar

4 or 5 whole allspice

1 cup Vegetable stock (optional)

Rosemary (optional)

1 teaspoon Oregano (optional)

1 Cinnamon stick

4 grated fresh Tomatoes

2 tablespoon Tomato paste

1/2 cup dry Red Wine (optional)

Salt and Pepper

 

Preparation:

In a large sauce pan add the beef into water and boil for about 20 minutes.

In a large separate bowl add the peeled baby onions and set aside for 1/2 hour. Once the onions are ready drain and add into the beef  with just enough water to cover both ingredients.

Once the meat is ready add in add the ingredients.

If you can find this allspice it works much better for this recipe than the powder version.  I add sugar into this recipe because tomatoes are out of season this time of year and because some tend to be a bit sour I sweeten up the tomato with the sugar.

Simmer for 1 hour on medium heat and cook until beef and onions are tender and soft.  I thought I should mention that this recipe can be made in the slow cooker…just through everything in and let it cook for about 4 to 5 hours.   🙂
