Have you ever wondered how some stews have this melt in the mouth texture while others taste like chewing rubber? Itâ€™s all about choosing the right cut and cooking it the right way. For a Greek beef stifado you need to choose large cuts of good quality stewing beef or even better veal, which, when cooked for a long time, become fork tender. When cooking Greek beef stifado, the meat is first browned and sealed to keep it nice and juicy, then added to a tomato based sauce along with caramelised baby shallots and aromatic spices,and herbs, and cooked at a low temperature. This is the secret to achieve the melt in the mouth texture, that will make your beef stew just perfect! Let your beef stifado simmer for a few hours to allow its flavours to mingle into something much more.
