Method

Take two rashers of bacon or pickled pork, cut them up in small cubes and fry them lightly with about twenty button onions in a mixture of butter and olive oil. Add about two pounds of lean beef cut in pieces two or three inches long and the same thickness; toss these in the saucepan till the meat is well “closed sprinkle in a tablespoonful of flour; stir well and cook for two minutes, then add one clove of garlic, salt and pepper, a bouquet of parsley, bay leaf, thyme and rosemary, and put in a mixture in equal parts, of red wine and water (or stock instead of water, if any available) so that it covers the meat. Cover the saucepan, bring to the boil and let it simmer for two hours, shaking occasionally.
