Heat oil (corn or peanut) using a skillet (cast iron is preferred). Saute the garlic, onions and add meats in (pork and sirloin), then cook until they’re brown (the onions done also be transluscent).

Using a larger pot, add beer, whiskey and allow to boil. Pour in the cooked meats with the sauce then add tomato sauce, paste, allspice, and minced jalapeno pepper.

Turn down the temperature, put on the cover, then allow to simmer one hour. Stir every now and then.

Take the cover off , then allow to simmer another thirty minutes, still stirring occasionally. Just before serving, sprinkle the cumin to taste.
