  • 1
    Remove excess fat from beef. Cut beef into 1-inch pieces. Toss beef, flour and cinnamon. Rinse frozen onions in cold water to separate; drain. Place beef and onions in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker.
  • 2
    Mix water, tomato paste, wine, vinegar and honey. Pour over beef mixture.
  • 3
    Cover and cook on low heat setting 9 to 10 hours or until beef is tender. Serve over pasta. Sprinkle with cheese.

Expert Tips

  • Skim the fat from stews or soups with a spoon, or place a slice of bread on the top of the mixture for a few minutes to absorb the fat.
  • Lamb is a frequently served meat in Mediterranean countries. You can use a small lamb roast in place of the beef if you'd like.
  • Feta cheese can be purchased in a variety of flavors, including herb-and-garlic and sun-dried tomato.
