WOW this has some awesome flavor combinations though I did make some minor changes based on other reviewers' comments. I was a bit leary of too much wine vinegar and how that would taste so I only used 1/2 cup of that less brown sugar (also around 1/2) and whole cloves instead of ground. Even though these changes I still think it deserves a high rating and we very much enjoyed this meal. Thanks for a great post ProfPam!
I thought this recipe had a great rich flavor with a bit of tang from the vinegar. I used a large oven-proof frypan with a tight fitting lid went right from stove to oven. The recipe says "wine vinegar" - I assumed this was red wine vinegar and it came out fine. Also the recipe calls for 1/4 tsp ground cloves but the instructions refer to "whole cloves" only. I scattered 6 whole cloves over the mix just before putting it in the oven. We ate it straight like a stew but it would be super over pasta or if you are really hungry mashed potatoes! Great reheated the next day.
this was a wonderful and flavorful alternative to the norm beef stew....the whole family enjoyed it... the only change i made was to add potatoes... i liked the flavor the red wine vinegar added...and having greek heritage its nice to finally have a good greek recipe!
Very interesting will try this tomorrow. The brown sugar is a new one on me. The recipe is usually spelled 'stifado' in Greek cookery books and originates in Corfu I think where there is a strong Italian influence (the name comes from the Italian 'stufato' which simply means 'stewed'.
This is so good - I think it tastes like a barbecue stew. It really did make the house smell wonderful. I don't think kids would like it as the vinegar might be overpowering to them. Great with roasted potatoes.
