4 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
500g minced venison
300ml red wine or port
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 beef stock cube

Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onions and garlic. Cook for 10 minutes, until lightly browned.

Tip in the mince and break up well with a spoon. Cook, stirring, until all the moisture has evaporated and the meat starts to brown.

Add the red wine or port and bring to a simmer. Reduce down until about a third of
the original volume is remaining.

Add the oregano, tomato paste, stock cube, tomatoes and a can full of water and cook for 35-40 minutes slowly.

Stir in the cornflour mix to thicken slightly and season well with salt and pepper.
