Original recipe makes 6



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Season the roast with salt and pepper. Put the flour on a large plate and dredge the meat in the flour. Place the oil in a roasting pan and heat it in the oven or on a burner over high heat until the oil is smoking hot. Add the roast and brown each side well, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the figs, red wine, and Port and cook over high heat until reduced by half. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Add the thyme, cover the roasting pan with a lid, and place in the oven. Cook until tender, about 1 hour. Remove the pan from the oven and place the roast on a cutting board, reserving the braising liquid in the pan for the sauce. Slice the roast against the grain, cutting 1/4-inch-thick pieces, and put the slices on a serving plate. Season the sauce in the pan to taste with salt and pepper. If the sauce is thin, place the pan on a burner over high heat and reduce until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Ladle sauce over the sliced meat and serve hot.
