Real Tacos, Mexican Style

1 3 1/2 pound beef chuck or pot roast
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1 large onion peeled and sliced
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 green bell pepper chopped
1 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup dry wine
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder

Rub salt and pepper into meat. Heat a large frying pan or stove
top casserole and add a bit of oil. Brown the meat well on both
sides, and then add about 1 cup of water. Cover and simmer until
very tender, about 2 hours. If pan dries out during cooking, add
more water. Allow the meat to cool, covered, in the pan juices.
Remove the meat from pan; debone and shred the meat. Set aside in
a bowl, along with the pan juices. Reheat the pan and add the
remaining oil. Saute the onion and garlic, just until clear. Add
the green pepper and saute for a few minutes more. Add the remaining
ingredients, including the shredded meat and juices. Cover and
simmer on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes more. Place filling in
the center of a warm wheat tortilla.

Garnish with:

Chopped scallions
Thinly sliced lettuce
Homemade salsa
Sour cream (optional)
Chopped fresh coriander (optional)

Roll up and enjoy.
