- In a large pot brown meat in stages, about a 1/4 at a time.
- Remove meat.
- Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent.
- Return meat to the pot, add the tomato juice, and 1/2 the spices.

- Let simmer about 2 hours; add the beans and simmer about 30 more minutes, then enjoy.
- I like mine served with corn bread and grated cheddar cheese.
This was a delicious blend of meat and spices. It had just enough spice so that it did not overpower all of the other ingredients. Fabulous.
