2 teaspoons pepper powder
2 pieces cinnamon
Salt to taste
2 teaspoons vinegar
4 tablespoons oil
2 big onions sliced
3 large potatoes peeled and cut into halves
A few carrots, beans, turnips, etc (optional)
Wash the meat and rub the salt, pepper and vinegar well into it all over. Heat oil in a large pan or pressure cooker and add the cinnamon sticks. Place the meat in this and brown all over, turning it from side to side. Add sufficient water and cook on low heat till the meat is tender. Add the sliced the onions, potatoes and other vegetables to the meat.
