   15       oz           Boneless chuck steak
    2       ts           Olive oil
    2       c            Water
      1/4   c            Tomato paste
    2       tb           Red wine vinegar
    2                    Inch cinnamon stick
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/4   ts           Each cumin seed and pepper
    1       c            Pearl onions, parboiled
    2       oz           Feta cheese, crumbled
   On rack in broiling pan broil chuck, turning once,
   until rare, about 5 minutes on each side; cut into
   1-inch cubes.  In 10-inch skillet heat oil over
   medium-high heat; add chuck and saute for 5 minutes.
   Transfer meat with slotted spoon to a 1 1/2-quart
   casserole, reserving the pan drippings. Preheat oven
   to 350F.  In same skillet stir water, tomato paste,
   vinegar, and seasonings into pan drippings; bring to a
   boil, stirring to scrape up any browned particles.
   Pour over meat in the casserole; cover and bake for 1
   1/2 hours.  Add onions, cover, and bake until meat is
   tender, about 30 minutes longer.  Remove and discard
   cinnamon stick. Top with feta cheese and bake,
   uncovered, until cheese is softened and heated
   through, about 5 minutes.
   Makes 4 servings.
