Boil this marinade for five minutes, then let it cool before pouring it over the meat.
Cover and refrigerate for one to two days, turning the meat occasionally.
Remove the meat from the marinade and tie it up.
Strain out the vegetables, reserving the liquid.
In a heavy casserole brown the marinade vegetables in the butter, then add the meat and brown it on all sides.
