oil over high heat until it boils. Add the garlic cloves, cover, and cook for
one minute. Remove the garlic from the oil and set aside to cool.Then peel
them by squeezing the cloves out of thier skins, and mince them finely. Add
the onion, lower heat to med. and saute until it starts to caramelize, about
10 min., stirring frequently. Add the garlic and remaining ingredients
(except meat) to the dutch oven. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low.
Cover, with lid slightly ajar so steam can escape, and simmer 2 hours, stirring
Salt meat if desired. Do not marinate it in the sauce. Instead, cook it
slowly over some aromatic charcoal like mesquite, basting with sauce only
once at the very end. Serve the meat with a generous spoonful of sauce on top
and place any extra sauce on table for dipping and sopping. makes 4 cups.
