- Beef stock powder or cubes
- Plain flour
- Tomato paste (not pictured)

Cut away all traces of fat or sinew. Cut meat into small cubes. I'm not fussy when I do this, my lazy way of doing it is to use kitchen scissors to cut the meat into long strips and then into cubes.
Cut bacon into strips
Finely dice carrots and onions
Add some oil to a large frying pan and cook the bacon, do not make it crispy. Remove from pan and set aside.
Brown the meat cubes in small batches and set aside
Add the diced onions and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes.
Return the bacon and browned meat to the pan and stir through.
Sprinkle a couple of spoons of plain flour over the top of the mixture
Stir the flour through to cover all the meat and vegetables
