Directions

In a large pot, sauté mushrooms and onions in olive oil and butter until onions are translucent and mushrooms are nicely browned. During the last minute, add crushed garlic to the mix. Add meat pieces and toss until browned as well, then put all the other ingredients except the fresh herbs in the pot. Bring to a boil and simmer on very low, covered, for about 2 hours or until the meat is tender and practically falling apart. Five minutes before serving, add the fresh herbs. Top with shredded or shaved Parmesan to serve. Makes 4-8 servings.
