Brown on all sides for "half an hour". I don't really know if you HAVE to brown it for half an hour or not. I didn't really time it. After browning you just add 1 cup of water, cover and simmer for 2 hours. That's it. It comes out nice and tender, and you end up with enough juices to make a nice gravy.
And while you're at it, steam up some sweet potatoes. Don't forget to KEEP YOUR EYES ON THEM AND DON'T LET THEM BURN.
