   Cut meat into 2 inch cubes.  Dice the bacon.  Skin and crush the garlic,
   using the tip of a firm knife, in a pinch of salt on the chopping board, or
   use a garlic press;   blend with the chopped parsley, cloves, and allspice.
   Put  the meat into a dish,  and add the wine vinegar, wine, and garlic
   spice  mixture.   Peel  and thinly slice one third of the onions and
   carrots,  add to the marinade with a little salt and pepper. Leave for at
   least 12 hours turning occasionally. Peel the remaining onions and carrots,
   quarter the onions but leave the carrots whole. Heat the oil in a large
   heavy skillet,  fry the  diced bacon  and  quartered  onions  until golden
   brown,  and  spoon  into  a casserole. Remove  the meat from the marinade,
   drain well.   Brown meat in the oil remaining  in the pan and add to the
   onions.   Pour the marinade  liquid and vegetables into the skillet and
   stir well to absorb the last of  the oil.  Add the whole carrots, brandy,
   and herbs. Cut  the zest from the orange and squeeze a little orange juice
   and  add this and the zest to the sauce. Season the sauce with a little
   salt and pepper.  Pour over the meat and onions, cover the casserole. Cook
   in  the  center of a slow (350 d F) for 2 1/4 hours. To serve, remove the
   garni.   This dish is particularly good when served with spaghetti,
   macaroni, or noodles, topped with butter, grated cheese and a little
   chopped parsley.
