Ingredients

    1 Kilo beef cut into 1 inch chunks
    1 Kilo small potatoes cut in four
    1 large onion, shredded
    1/2 cup red wine
    1/4 cup tomato paste diluted in 1 cup water
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    2 bay leaves
    Salt, pepper to taste
    Dash of cinnamon

Tips

This food goes well with feta cheese, bread, lettuce salad and red wine.


Directions

1. Wash the meat and ensure it is well drained or dry with paper towel. Saute in a large pan until all liquid has dissolved. Add the olive oil and onion and saute a few min longer. Pour in the wine and saute 1 min.
2. Add the tomato, salt, pepper, bay leaf and cinnamon and cover with water until the meat is covered. Simmer for 45 min.
3 Add the potatoes and stir gently. Make sure there is enough sauce in the pan because the potatoes absorb a lot of water. If needed add a bit more water. Simmer 20 min longer or until potatoes are tender.
4. When its done let it stand for 15 min with the lid half open
