This Greek Beef Stew with Onions & Feta Cheese is ridiculously good. We make it regularly during the cooler months and usually serve it with noodles of some sort or even a roasted potato. The aromas of cinnamon, allspice & beef will make your mouth water as it cooks away. While cinnamon beef stew may not sound appealing to you…don’t be afraid to give it a go…you’ll be surprised at how delicious it is!
