2/3 medium Potatoes – peeled and finely sliced in 1/8in slices
1 clove Garlic – finely chopped
1 large Onion – finely sliced
2 medium Carrots – finely sliced

75ml/5tbsp Red Wine
Sprinkling of Worcestershire Sauce – to taste
1 Bay Leaf
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 150°C/300°F/Gas 2
You can remove the fat from the steak but leaving it on adds another dimension to the gravy, improving the taste;
Pour two tablespoons of oil into the frying pan, heat to a medium high temperature and add the meat slices;
Cook, stirring constantly, for a couple of minutes until the slices are browned on all sides;
Place in a large casserole dish and pour the meat juices into the stock;
Pour the remaining oil into the frying pan, heat to a low heat, add the garlic, onions, peppers and leeks and, stirring occasionally, cook for some 5 minutes or so until softened a bit;
Sprinkle the flour over the onion mixture, stirring for a minute to mix well;
Slowly pour in the stock, bring the mixture to the boil and turn the heat to low;
Stir in the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, red wine, season with salt and pepper, bring to boil, and heat on medium high for 3 to 4 minutes or so to thicken slightly then simmer for two or so minutes more;
Pour the tomato and onion mixture into the casserole dish;
Add the potatoes, carrots, bay leaves and combine everything together well;
Cover and put in the pre-heated oven for 2½ to 3 hours until potatoes soft and meat tender.
