How to do it:

  1. Season the meat with salt and pepper, add oregano, brush it with mustard and place it in the casserole dish.
  2. Cut the vegetables into thick slices and place them on top of the pieces of meat.
  3. Add the water, pour a little olive oil, cover with the lid and bake in a strong oven (220°C) for 2 hours.
  4. Then mix the orange juice, lemon juice and 1 tbsp mustard, pour it over the meat and continue baking without the lid at 180°C until the meat absorbs most of its juices and it is left with just a little sauce. 
  5. Attention! During the second phase of baking turn the pieces of meat over every half hour.

Additional tips

This is a recipe of my own after many tries to successfully cook meat in the oven. Usually it came out dry and without any taste. But cooking it this way, it comes out soft, juicy and extremely delicious.

The temperatures are indicative, you can turn the heat up or down depending on your oven. At first you need strong heat and then moderate.

Don't forget to turn the meat over.

Good luck and bon appétit!
