Coat the meat through flour, season, and braze the meat in a pot.

Add the wine or beer and scrape the bottom of the pot, to integrate the parts that stick to the bottom of the pot, let the alcohol evaporate.
Add the tomato and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Fill the pot with water, add herbs and cook until the meat is very soft and the texture of the stew is correct (it is not a soup).
Season and serve with rice and tortillas.
