Cube the boneless beef chuck into 1 inch pieces. Cut potatoes into 1/4 inch thick slices.

Bring 5 cups of water with 1 tablespoon of salt to a boil. Add meat, cook over moderate heat for 15 minutes. Remove foam that rises during this time. Remove meat from liquid and set aside.

Add rice to same liquid and cook over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Drain rice through a colander, rinse under cold water, set aside.

Put sliced potatoes on bottom of pan, arranged in orderly fashion. Spread half of the rice over this; sprinkle with pepper and cinnamon. Place raisins in center of rice. Add all meat over this and top with the remainder of rice. Pour in cup of hot water, drizzle oil over surface and around edges of pan.

Cover pan and cook over low heat for 1/2 hour. Reduce heat to very low and cook, tightly covered, for 5 hours. Serve warm.
