Stages of cooking

  1. Let’s start with the marinade for the meat first. Take a deep bowl, mix 1 onion cut into 4 pieces, 1 carrot sliced into circles, thyme, bay leaf, black pepper, cloves, basil and sliced leek. Add meat cut into large pieces and wine. Leave in the fridge for 3-5 hours. If it is possible, leave the meat in the fridge for 24 hours.
