I've been making this for my family for over 30 years. Its been changed over the years and has evolved. This is a really tasty and filling dish that is cheap to make and the whole family will enjoy.

This dish is great served with dumplings and it tastes great left until the next day and warmed through. Try substituting swede for the potatoes.
