  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Put the oil and bacon in a large casserole and cook until the bacon is crispy. Remove the bacon and set aside.
  2. Season the beef with the salt, pepper, and allspice and sear in the bacon drippings and oil until nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from casserole and set aside.

Cover the casserole and place on bottom rack of oven. After 10 minutes, check to make sure it's simmering; turn heat up 25° F if not. Cook until the meat is falling apart, about 2 hours.
