2. In a brazier, brown the beef in the vegetable oil over high heat. Brown a little at a time so as not to overcrowd the pan.

3. Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cayenne to the beef over moderate heat. Stir and cook a few minutes, until the spices are aromatic.

4. Add the stock. Bring to a boil, cover, and place in an oven at 325°F (165°C) for 112-2 hours, or until the beef is tender.

5. Degrease the cooking liquid carefully.

Variation_

Texas Short Ribs

In place of the lean beef, use 7 lb 8 oz (3.4 kg) beef short ribs. After the ribs are tender, remove them from the braising liquid and carefully degrease the liquid. Add just enough cornmeal or masa harina to lightly thicken the liquid, approximately half the amount in the basic recipe.
