Episode 4 - Kokkinisto (Beef and Tomato) & Politiki SaladIngredients

500gr diced beef

3 cloves of garlic

2 red onions

6tbsp olive oil

sunflower oil for deep drying

6 tomatoes

3 potatoes

½tsp sugar

Salt, pepper, paprika, oregano and nutmeg (if you like it) 

Method

Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan and brown the beef. Remove the meet and add the garlic and onions after you slice them. When they get nice and soft add the beef back in the sauce pan.

Put the tomatoes in the blender and then pour them in the sauce pan. Add salt, pepper, paprika, nutmeg, oregano and stir.

Pour a cup of water and boil at a low temperature for 50-60 minutes. Make sure you’re checking if there’s enough water until the meet is well cooked and soft. Then the tomato sauce should be nice and thick.

Cut the potatoes into long chip shape. Heat the sunflower oil and fry them until they get a slight brown colour.
