Ingredients

3 lb  Pork, shoulder, whole, lean, raw
1 pinch  paprika
1 tbsp  olive oil
1 each  cooking spray
4 each  medium garlic cloves
3 cup  cold water
5 each  medium celery stalk
1 lb  fresh green beans
0 1/4 tsp  ground turmeric
1 pinch  salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Rub meat liberally with paprika and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat oil. Saute garlic for about a minute, then add meat and brown.
  3. Add water and cook covered for about 90 minutes, until done. Cool.
  4. If possible, try to cook meat a day in advance. This enables meat juices to gel and fat to congeal on top, which can then be removed and discarded.
  5. Wrap meat in foil. Pour stock into a container. Refrigerate.
  6. Slice cold meat into thin slices.
  7. Put celery and green beans in a pot, along with the cooking juices (fat removed).
  8. Arrange meat slices on the vegetables and sprinkle spices on top. Cook covered on low heat for another 90 minutes until meat is very tender. Add water if necessary.
