chuck roast (1/2 lb. per person)

2 cups red wine

1 cup water or beef broth

3 tbs. oil

10 cloves of garlic

1 large onion

1/2 tsp. thyme

1/2 tsp. rosemary

1 or 2 chili peppers (optional)

dash of salt and pepper

vegetables of your choice cut into pieces (I used potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, okra, and tomatoes.)

1. Wash meat and pat dry. Coat with flour.

2. Fry beef in oil on all sides until brown

3. After the beef is done browning, add the wine and scrape the bottom of the pot in order to release all of the flavor.

4.  Add  the remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat for approximately 2 hours or until meat is to your desired texture, stirring occasionally.

5. Serve with bread.
