Ahead of time (hours)

- Soak currants in sherry

- Make adobo and Recaito if you don't have them

Season beef with combined olive oil, vinegar, adobo, and oregano ahead of time.

Make stuffing: Combine currants (drain but save sherry), olives, ham, and chorizo. Make a large pocket in roast and fill with stuffing (it's okay to have left over stuffing). Tie roast. Let stand 1+ hour.

Sear roast and then add all other ingredients except potatoes. Braise for 1-2 hours.

Slice beef, return to pot, add potatoes, and cook until done.
