"Excellent in a pressure cooker! I tried it once in a slow cooker: not as flavorful. I adapted a recipe that came with my pressure cooker. It is also known as Stifado if you use pearl onions, but I didn't have any and had to use yellow onion. I have to add potatoes and carrots! Be very careful with the amounts of salt, cinnamon and ground cloves. Works very well with moose or venison. I serve it with J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits (try making those with buttermilk). Yum!" — Peter I.

cubed beef stew meat
onion, peeled and chopped
1 large clove
red wine vinegar
fat-free reduced-sodium beef broth
whole black peppercorns
ground black pepper

light brown sugar
1 (28 ounce) can
whole plum tomatoes, undrained and quartered
potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
carrots, peeled and sliced
salt to taste
It's getting cold, stew weather! I guess the double secret step for this is to grind the bay leaves, picking out the main stems, couple peppercorns or pinch of coarse salt helps the grinding along.
v. good, add masala or pepper for more zing
I wasn't sure what to make of the cumin and the cinnamon...they changed the flavor that enough with the bay leaf it was hit or miss with my crowd.
