In large skillet, over low heat, melt margarine. Add garlic, and cook 2-3 minutes, being careful not to brown it.
Add tomato meats. Stir and roll meats in margarine till well-coated. Salt to taste, then pepper sparingly. Cook, uncovered for 10 minutes.
Add reserved tomato liquid. Stir well and cook on low heat for 15 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. No longer than 15 minutes.
