flour. Make sure that there is enough fat in fryer. If not, add a Tb or so, so
that it mixes well. Stir until the mixture is smooth.

brown the meat, stirring it to get it brown, but not burned. When brown, stir in
the tomatos and cook gently for about 20 minutes. Then add the bay leaves, salt,
oregano, red wine vinegar, and brown sugar. Cook about another 20 minutes and
then add the red kidney beans. Cook slowly for about 2 hours. Then add the ripe
black olives, after cutting them into thin slices, and use the pitted ones. and
cook another 30 minutes. If the mixture looks too thick, add another can of
tomatos at the time you put in the kidney beans, Serve with a bowl of crackers.
