Beef stew with red gravy or beef "kokkinisto" is a wonderfully hearty and flavorful dish. What may strike you when reading the ingredients is the fact that the recipe calls for a small amount of ground cinnamon. As odd as it may seem, the cinnamon is what takes this dish from good to great. The key is to use just enough spice to enhance the flavor of the gravy without drawing attention to its presence. While the meat pairs well with pasta, rice, or vegetables, my American side can't help but recommend it with mashed potatoes. After all, weren't they invented so that we could smoother them with gravy?
