      This is a fairly ordinary stew recipe until you add the cheese, and then--WOW. I like the fact that there are two kinds of onions added at two different times, which adds another layer of flavor. We served this with pasta, but it would be good with rice or bread as well. Thanks for posting!

      Very good. I did make these alterations, which I felt were in the spirit of a Greek stew recipe. Instead of butter, I used 3 tblsps olive oil, and intstead of the monterey jack, I used a Greek graviera cheese. Also upped the garlic to 3 cloves for this amount of meat. I got a very flavourful stew which I served over buttered rice. This would probably be called 'stifado' here in Greece (the quantity of onion - and we would use pearl onions here, I just used white onions, quartered, as the recipe didn't specify). The ingredients are not in the same order as stated in the instructions and this requires constant checking back and forth. Good recipe.
