meat is tender about 40-50 mins.

At the same time bring pan of water to boil. Blanch onions for

Cut off the tops of the onions, not too much or they'll break up
later on. Peel off outer layer of onions. Pull apart the head of
garlic. Peel away any papery skin on the garlic cloves. Add onions
and garlic to stew. Cook for 35 minutes more.

Add some flour (by making a paste with cold water) When adding

Now serve with mashed potatoes or polenta. It's very popular back
in Romania in the fall ( or any other time!!!)
