Lonza

(Loin of pork)

Ingredients for 4 people: take one kilo of "lonza" (that is the name given to beef's cheek, tail and lips), pieces of beef's tongue and a bone of one leg in order to make the ingredients be less sticky.

Brown the "lonza" in oil, salt and pepper and chili pepper, then add a glass of good red wine, make it dry, but just a little bit, then add abundant chopped garlic, onion and parsley, cloves, nutmeg, a pinch of cinnamon and some tomato purée. Boil it very slowly for about 5 hours until a perfect cooking is reached. That is a very simple course poor in its ingredients, but very tasty, especially if served with a superb red wine.
