  • 1 roast
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1/2- 3/4 c. flour
  • 2-3 tblsp. olive oil
  • 1.5 c. water

Steps & Family Notes:


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Cut up roast into pieces of desired size. My family likes 1-1.5 inch cubes. Discard bones.


Season the roast pieces with salt, pepper and garlic powder. I line the cubed pieces up on the cutting board, sprinkle seasonings on top, then I flip the pieces using a long knife and season the other side.


Coat all sides of the roast with flour. To coat the pieces I add 6-7 pieces at a time to a mixing bowl filled with 1/2 c. (add more as needed). Then I remove the pieces, place them in a strainer, and “bounce” the strainer over the bowl a few times so the excess flour goes back into the bowl.


Brown all the roast pieces in oil over medium-high heat.


Place roast pieces in a 13 X9 glass baking pan. Add water. Cover tightly with foil.


Bake at 300 degrees for three hours.
