  3. Favourite recipe thread ...

    Hi Mark, About 200 from memory as I don't cook it that often ... It is a great recipe for winter too as it is a beef stew. I have also had it made with chicken & octopus, but beef is the best in my opinion ...

  7. Favourite recipe thread ...

    As requested by Wolfie ---------> here Beef Stifado (from a Cretan recipe) • 1.5 Kgs Stewing steak • At least 1/2 bottle of good, rich red wine • 3 Cloves of garlic, thinly sliced • Shallots or baby onions • Cupful of Olive oil for frying • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half • 3 Bay leaves • 1 tsp Bahari (ground allspice) • 2 Tbsp tomato puree • Salt and freshly ground black pepper Cut the beef into chunks, around 2" is about right. In a fairly hot pan, heat the olive oil and when hot, fry your chunks of beef until sealed on all sides and slightly browned. Add some more oil to the pan and fry the onions (chopped in half if they're too big) over a medium heat until they start to brown for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for a further minute. Put this in with the beef. Pour the wine into the pan, add the cinnamon, bahari & bay leaves. Stir in the tomato puree. Transfer to a deep dish & cook in a hot oven & cook slowly until tender. Grab yourself the other half bottle of wine and marinate your throat and stomach with it! Occasionally disturb yourself to give the stifado a stir. It will take at least 2 hours to cook slowly! When it's done, the meat should be very tender and the sauce sweet and thick. Serve with rice, Greek salad & crusty bread ...... & more red wine!

    Beef Stifado is my favourite Cretan/Greek dish, I was taught how to make it the authentic way. If you would like the recipe let me know.
