An exciting beef casserole inspired by Greek stifado. This version comes with the added flavour and nutrition of artichoke hearts, broad beans, new potatoes and juicy, purple-skinned Kalamata olives. Ideal for a family Sunday lunch or easy entertaining, and needs only a green salad alongside.

Stifado is Greek for 'stew' and a stifado recipe typically calls for rabbit, beef or even beef heart. This beef stifado is simply delicious and like any other stifado I recommend serving it with rice, chips, mashed potato or simply loads of crusty bread!

Stifado is a favourite Greek stew, especially popular during winter. This recipe results in tender, impeccably flavoured rabbit. Serve with hand-cut chips, rice or mash. Crusty bread is also essential to mop up all the sauce.

An authentic Greek beef stifado that is slow cooked in a rich red wine and tomato sauce for 4, 5, or even 6+ hours until meltingly tender. (I once cooked this stifado on the hob over two days for more than 13 hours in total and the beef had a "fudge" like consistency). In Greece this is served in a bowl by itself with just crusty bread, but I like to serve some kind of potato with it, roast or mash work really good with it, and feel free to serve your favourite veg on the side too.

Stifado is a Greek stew made with small onions. My mum made this every autumn. Serve with creamy mashed potatoes for a warming, hearty meal that will take the chill out of any evening.
