This recipe never fails if there is enough sauce. You can't go wrong. If it looks like there's too little liquid just add more water, vinegar and tomato sauce.

- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon mixed spice

- 1⁄2 cup sultana

- 1 1⁄4 cups water

- Peel and cut the carrots into big chunks and mix in with the meat.

- TO MAKE THE SAUCE

The taste was good but I'm glad I had another batch of the sauce to add for when checked at 1 1/2 hours there was very little left but in adding the next lot and another 30 minutes in the oven (I cooked at 175C fan forced oven) and there was a wonderful thick gravy. I subbed potatoe for the parsnip and added beans to make a complete one pot dish which we all enjoyed. Definately make sure you have bread or bread rolls to mop up the gravy, great comfort food.
