“A mixed meat stew that started out as a sweet and sour way to use some leftover cranberries and ended up tasting like a Stifado - so I was told by the eaters!. Appreciated by the fans of the local Greek Restaurant (my family)! A bit of an experiment (with the cranberries) but a happy accidental result. I cooked mine in a Wok and a slow cooker but I imagine any pan and stewing method will work.”
