So I just made this today having made roast beef yesterday and thought I'd use the leftovers for stovies. Stovies are traditional in Scotland but made differently everywhere you go. The North make it different from the South, the East make it different from the West, etc. Basically some sort of meat e.g. sausages, beef, lamb, corned beef, plus onions and potatoes. I don't put sausages in mines as I don't like them but almost everyone one I come across does. This is really straight forward, simple to make and a good use of your leftovers from a roast. There is not really exact measurements, it's all trial and error. Stovies are always one of those throw everything into the pan and hope for the best kind of dishes but it's soooo yummy!
Try not to break up potatoes too much with all the stirring. It shouldn't be the consistency of mash, we still want chunks of potato in there.
I make mine with beef dripping but it's not an essential if you don't have it; butter does the same job. But for me beef dripping is a must!
