  7. Increase heat to medium or high and cook until most of the natural juices from the meat have been reduced.
  8. Add enough water to cover the meat and reduce heat to between low and medium. Cover the pot and cook until the meat is tender. Be sure to check on it from time to time and also give it a quick stir. Add water as needed until the meat is properly cooked through.
  9. When it is almost fully cooked through and that there is enough sauce to your liking, taste and adjust salt if needed. Also add a pinch of roasted green and the green seasoning. Stir properly and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes further or until the sauce has thickened.
