He was a sweet, quiet kind of a guy, with a twinkle in his eyes,he could rebuild an engine, repair the plumbing, even wire a house and dad could cook! Mom would make a fuss though when he was done cooking, as the kitchen was a bit messy to say the least.This meal was delicious, but I don't have his written recipe for it. The kitchen smelled great. This simmered a while and it had tomatoes, onions and garlic in it. My thoughts about this produced the following recipe.

    Add the tomatoes and wine and cover, bring to a boil, add more liquid as it evaporates, using either water or tomatoe juice. Let this cook at a low temperature, braising the meat. There should be liquid but it's not supposed to be a soup.

    As you would cook a stew, perhaps an hour and a half or possibly two hours of simmering will do. When done taste for seasonings, add more salt and or pepper to taste.
