We cook the meat in a pot; covering it with water from the bottom. Add salt, pepper, and bay leaves. Heat to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low. It covers; cook for 50 to 60 minutes or until meat is tender enough to be shredded. Let it cool. Discard the liquid. Shred meat. In a 12-inch diameter skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until onion is translucent. Add the wine, and let it reduce slightly for 30 to 60 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir the ingredients for the sauce except for the pepper and parsley. Cook uncovered for about 7 minutes or until thickened. Add the meat and the green pepper.
