Sofrito is one of the most famous and unique dishes of Corfu. It is made with beef, cooked in a wine sauce with lots of garlic and lots of parsley, and served with rice or mashed potatoes.
Cut 1 kg of beef into slices. Add salt and pepper and cover with flour. The flour will serve as the basis of the sauce.
Fry the slices of meat in a pan in olive oil until they are golden brown. Take them out of the pan.
Fry in the same pan 8-10 finely chopped cloves of garlic and 1 finely chopped bunch of parsley for 3-4 minutes.
Add 2 glasses of white wine and a little vinegar and with a wooden spoon scrape the bottom of the pan to dissolve the rests of the flour.
Add the slices of meat and a little water and simmer until the meat is tender and the sauce thickens. Be careful because the sauce will start sticking at the bottom of the pan. Scrape carefully with a wooden spoon.
Serve with rice and/or mashed potatoes.
