Carne Adobada (meat In Red Chile)

1 1/2 lb Fresh Pork Sirloin, Pork Shoulder or Beef Chuck, Trimmed with Trimmings Reserved
3 Cloves Garlic, Peeled
1 c Stock, Beef or Chicken
3 c Water 4 1/2 tb Gebhardt's Chile Powder
1 1/2 ts Leaf Oregano
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Black Pepper
3 Inches Stick Cinnamon
1/4 ts Allspice, Ground
Flour Tortillas


Cut the meat into several large pieces. Cook the reserved fat and trimmings in a saucepan large enough to hold all the meat at once. Cook until about 1 tablespoon of the fat has been rendered (working with quantities for 4 servings, adjust as required). Discard the trimmings and fat. Add the meat, garlic, cloves, stock and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly. Boil gently, uncovered, for 1 1/2-2 hours. Add the chile powder, oregano, salt, pepper, cinnamon and allspice while the meat is cooking. The stock should cook down to a thick, rich sauce. Once the meat is tender, remove it from the sauce and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Return the meat to the sauce. Adjust seasonings. Remove the cinnamon stick. Serve with a salad, Mexican rice and flour tortillas.
