  1. Trim off all fat and sinew from the meat, then chop into cubes or small strips.
  2. Powder the meat in plain flour so it is completely covered.
  3. Remove the rind of the bacon and chop.
  4. In a heavy bottom frying pan, fry the bacon, garlic and chilli in a little oil.
  5. Once the bacon is cooked, remove from the pan, but retain the oil.
  6. Cook the meat in small quantities until brown all over.
  7. Into a slower cooker, put in the red wine, water, wholegrain mustard, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, BBQ sauce, herbs, bay leaves. Stir until well combined. Add the meats and roughly chopped vegetables.
  8. Cooking times vary. At least 6 hours is needed to ensure the meat is tender and the potatoes are cooked through. I’ve cooked this for 24 hours and it’s come out perfect.
