When the juices of the meat are coming through and the underside is brown, the minced pork is ready to be turned, again breaking up the meat constantly.

Repeat the process of browning the minced pork for the minced beef, and then the chicken liver. Add both meats when browned to the sauce.

To the frying pan pour in the tins of tomatoes and stir and then add to the main pot. Stir all the ingredients in the main pot. Add to the main pot two pints of water.

Squeeze 3 oz of tomato puree in to the pot. Bring the pot to the boil, then turn the heat down and leave to simmer for 2-3 hours.
