This is a recipe from my mother-in-law who lived in Greece all her life. It takes a little bit of time to prepare it, but is well worth your time!

This was really good and easy to scale down. I used a merlot because that's what I had on hand. I also sauted some garlic with the beef. I have a blend of mediterranean seasonings that I bought somewhere and I mixed in about a 1/4 teaspoon of that in with the beef. I also salted and peppered the potato and zucchini. I served this with some pita chips and hummus.
