    Chef #365329's Note:

    I honestly don't remember where this one came from - I just have a photocopy. But it is an incredibly flavorful stew. Great over polenta, couscous, potatoes. Stored in a tightly covered container, this stew will freeze well for up to 6 months, though the basil will darken in color. You might want to freshen it up with some fresh shredded basil or chopped parsley.

    1. 1
      Pat the meat dry. In a large flameproof casserole, heat the olive oil over moderately high heat. Add the meat in 2 batches and cook, turning, until nicely browned, about 5 minutes per batch. As the meat is cooked, remove it to a plate.
    2. 2
      Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are golden and beginning to brown around the edges, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour int he vermouth and boil until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Then add the chopped tomatoes with their juices, the vinegar, black pepper, hot pepper, and 1-1/2 cups water.
    3. 3
      Add the meat to the sauce, along with any juices that have collected on the plate. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer 1-1/4 hours. Add the olives and simmer 20 to 30 minutes longer, or until the meat is tender.
    4. 4
      Add the sun-dried tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes. (The stew can be made to this point up to 2 days in advance.) Just before serving, stir in the fresh basil.
