Heat oil in a casserole and lightly brown the meat. Reserve, then cook vegetables in pan for 4-5 minutes, add tomato purée and cornflour, and cook until liquid evaporates.
Return meat, deglazing with a splash of marinade. Add remainder, slowly boil (skimming off any foam), cover and simmer gently for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Strain into large bowl, remove meat and set aside. For a less rustic finish, fish out the herbs and spices to avoid biting into an intense surprise!
Return sauce and veg to the pan and roughly liquefy using a masher or stick blender. Boil to thicken. Add the meat, return to a simmer, season and add grated nutmeg to taste. Stir in a knob of butter before serving.
This finished casserole also makes a fantastic deep-dish game pie filling - just add the pastry!
Great with Braised Red Cabbage
