Fry the bacon in a large deep frying pan until crisp. Remove from the pan. Fry the onion and garlic in the bacon fat until golden brown.

This was simply delicious, thick and rich we subbed in tomato paste and red onion which saved a drive to the supermarket and it was a great meal for a cold autumn evening. We paired it with potato and kumara mash

Loved this...did make a couple alterations:
-Doubled the garlic
-Used 4 carrots
-at the end..2TBS of room temp butter and 2TBS flour blended to a paste with a fork...added when meat and veg are cooked and tender...stir in and bring to boil to thicken and round out flavor of the sauce.
-Also used a Shiraz for the wine.
