We suggest this typical dish of Tuscan gastronomy, specifically in Florence. First, to prepare the peposo it has to be cut into pieces not too small the meat. Once cut, the pieces are put into a large saucepan and thick-bottomed (preferably earthenware, as tradition dictates).
If you want a more aggressive course and faithful to the old recipe you should sprinkle the bottom of the pan with lard, We prefer a lighter preparation and then omit this added fat. Once settled into the pan with pieces of beef are added four cloves of garlic, wine, and a whole bunch of sage and rosemary.
Then cook over low heat for about 2 hours and a half. When the wine has reduced to a sauce add a pinch of salt and possibly a 'further ground pepper and serve. In Florence is proposed accompanied with slices of toasted bread.
