  1. Pat meat dry with a paper towel and rub with 2 tablespoons flour and salt. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Brown meat on all sides. Add the sliced onions, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for about one hour, adding a little water if necessary. Turn meat twice during the cooking process.
