Simmer, covered, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until fork-tender.

Remove meat to heated platter and keep hot. Skim about 1/4 cup fat from liquid in Dutch oven. Stir cold water into flour; slowly add, stirring, to liquid; cook until thickened. Stir in cream and 1 tsp. stuaf; bring to boil once; pour over meat; serve at once.


Especially nice with buttered carrots, green beans, and dill potatoes. (make parsley potatoes, adding snipped fresh dill instead of parsley)
