With Slow Cooker Greek Stew, the main difference from other stews is that it has lots of onions. In Greece they call their stew Stifado! Enjoy!

  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil, brown stew meat, 1 lb. at a time, adding more oil if needed.
  2. Place beef in a 5-6 quart slow cooker, draining off excess oil.
  3. Turn skillet heat to medium and place onions in the skillet, cooking until soft; add garlic, cinnamon and allspice and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Next add vinegar, tomato sauce, sugar and bay leaf and stir well to combine.
  5. Transfer mixture and pour over meat.
  6. Cover. Cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours or on High for 4 to 5 hours, until beef is tender.
  7. Approximately 15 minutes before stew is done, add feta cheese, cover, and crock until melted into stew.
  8. Remove bay leaf.
