Beef Stifado


Ever since I came back from my summer holiday in Greece, I've been thinking about making stifado. I bought a book with Greek recipes on my way back from Corfu, and I made the stifado according to the recipe in the book. It's a traditional Greek dish made with beef, small onions and a lot of different spices. In our, Macedonian, cuisine we have a similar dish called chomlek (чомлек), and I like it a lot, but there's something about the stifado recipe that makes it exotic and natural at the same time. And, I almost forgot - I pronounce it my favorite. That explains why there are so few photos, I couldn't lose time in taking photographs, the entire house smelled divinely.
