Preparation / Directions:
Toss the meat with a blend of the seasonings and then with remaining ingredients. Spoon mixture onto the sheets of foil. Tuck a small piece of bay leaf into each, if desired. Close packets with a drug-store fold and twist the ends tightly; if using parchment, twist and tie ends with cord.
Place packets in a 325 oven and cook 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Or cook mixture in a tightly covered casserole.
Packets might be set on a grill over moderate hot coals and cooked slowly, turning over several times, about 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
