  1. Place the 1/4 cup flour in a plastic bag. Add the meat pieces, a few at a time, shaking to coat. In a 4-quart Dutch Oven brown meat, one-third at a time, in hot oil. Drain well. Return all the meat to the Dutch oven. Add the 4 cups water, the chopped onion, garlic, and bay leaves to meat. Stir in the sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, paprika, and allspice. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 1-1/2 hours or until meat is nearly tender.
