Brown meat in baon drippings; remove and add flour. Use a heavy black pot and brown flour to a dark roux. Add onions, parsley, and garlic. Cook until soft, then add water and rice, salt and pepper, and browned meat. When it comes to a boil, lower heat to lowest point and cook for about 1 hour, covered tightly. When rice is done, remove lid and let cook for a few minutes until rice dries a little.
