2. Cover meat with cold water, bring to a boil, cover and reduce to simmer,
cooking 1 hour. Allow meat to cool in its own broth until easy to handle.
Trim fat from meat.

3. Over medium-low heat, render remaining fat from meat and allow meat to
brown. Remove meat and drippings from pot.

4. Measure out 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute onion and garlic in drippings
and allow onion to cook soft. Stir in the cumin and oregano. Add the

and pepper.

5. Cover and cook 10 minutes over medium-high heat. Lower to medium-low,
uncover and cook an additional 20 minutes. Garnish with sour cream.

Variation: This stew is also made using tomatillos rather than red
tomatoes. Replace the 3 large tomatoes with 2 cans (10 oz. each)
tomatillos, drained, or 1 pound fresh tomatillos, cooked and drained.
