Recipe: Stifatho

by Carrinicole

Stifatho is a traditional Greek dish that for decades was made with rabbit. Now in more modern times, we make it with beef. It’s a delicious staple, and a perfect hearty winter meal.

This is a “low and slow” dish, that simmers for over two hours to develop flavor, so plan accordingly! It goes well with rice, potatoes, or vegetables.
