Some of the ingredients ready for cooking

Method

Parboil the potatoes for around 10 min whilst frying the onion, beef, carrots and garlic till the mince is browned.

Add all other ingredients (other than the kale) and mix well.  Add water and a splash of red wine to just about cover the ingredients.

Bring to the boil and then simmer for 40-50 mins until the sauce has thickened.

Steam/boil the kale for a few mins and serve.
