Plate with Greek ‘Sofrito’ made from beef coated in flour served with French fries

Sofrito is a traditional recipe found in the Ionian Islands, and is a classic dish of Corfu. Its name is derived from “so fritto”, means “braised”, and comes from the era of Venetian rule.

Sofrito is made from beef coated in flour and then braised in oil with three ingredients, vinegar, garlic and parsley, that balance delightfully against each other. White wine is often used in its preparation. The result is a very tasty dish, with a thick white, velvety sauce. Sofrito is served hot with rice or French fries or with spaghetti, and accompanies any type of wine.
