1 400g tin of good quality italian tomatoes
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic

  1. So, chop the heart as finely as you can, i mincer would be great. Brown the meat in batches, then the onion (finely chopped) and garlic. Now add the mushroom and soften all the ingredients. Add the wine, bay leaf, thyme. Cook out the wine and then add the tomatoes.
  2. Stew this gently with a lid on for a couple of hours.
