Beef Stifado

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by echo echo

I used to make this on the stove over very low heat, but since I got a crockpot, I use that. This is good served over white or brown rice.

Sweet-toothed DH absolutely loved this. I added some dried cranberries, too, and used balsamico because that's what I had. Will make this again! Thanks for posting.
