DIRECTIONS

  • Season the meat with one half of the salt and peppers.
  • Dust with flour on all sides.
  • Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or other large heavy pot over medium-high heat, add the meat, and brown well on all sides.
  • Remove the meat and pour off all but 1 teaspoon of the oil.
  • Add half the onions, bell peppers, celery, and the other half of the seasonings, and the stock or water.
  • Stir well and reduce the heat to the lowest possible point.
  • Return the meat to the pot and cover with the remaining vegetables.
  • Cover and let cook until the meat is very tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Serve the meat in slices, with rice alongside and the gravy over all.
  • When you try this recipe with other kinds of meat, be sure to adjust the cooking times accordingly--let tenderness be your guide.
  • For extra flavorful meat, try larding with slivers of garlic before smothering.
