How to Make Stifado

Step-by-Step

  1. Trim meat of fat. Heat oil in Dutch oven; brown meat. Add cinnamon sticks and 1 cup beef broth; cook 1 1/2 hours or til meat is tender. Add onions garlic; cook over low heat about 10 minutes.
  2. Add tomato sauce, remaining 1 cup beef broth and salt. Cook covered, 30 minutes or til meat is very tender. Remove and discard cinnamon sticks. Serve at once. Serves 6
  3. Stifado is a robust dish that gets its flavor from then unusual combination of cinnamon and garlic. This recipe, often handed down among families for generations is a Sunday mainstay in Greece and on the islands. It can be made with beef or lamb. The dish also freeze well.
