Remove the membrane, wash and lard the meat, season with salt and pepper. Place in a baking dish, pour on the melted butter and garnish with lemon slices. Add the pickled Machlalí vegetable mix and place in the refrigerator. The following day, brown the meat in a mixture of oil and butter, fry the chopped onions in the gravy, add a table-spoon of sugar and stir until caramelized, then add the lemon slices and brown in the pan. Add the Machlalí from the baking dish and the all spice and boil for a short time.
