Preheat the oven to 140 -160ºC / Fan 120-140 ºC / Gas 1-3.

After sautéing the vegetables, place the meat back in the pan.
Add wine, stock or water, and herbs.
Make sure that the liquid covers at least a third to a half of the meat and bring to a gentle simmer.
4. THE COOKING PROCESS
Cover with a lid and transfer into the preheated oven or continue to simmer gently on the hob at a very low temperature.

Cooking times vary depending on your oven.
