In a baking dish put a first layer of tuna sauce, a layer of meat, another state of tuna sauce and another layer of meat, continue until the meat finishes.

Cover the last state of meat with tuna sauce and garnish with capers.

Put the pan in the fridge for 24 hours so that the meat absorbs the tuna sauce well.

The meat must have, on the palate, the consistency of tuna, firm, but at the same time must be crumbly.
