Heat the sunflower oil in a large, heavy-based casserole dish over a moderate heat. Season and then sear the beef chunks, in batches if necessary, until golden brown in colour all over. Remove and transfer to a colander set over a bowl.

Reduce the heat a little then add the potato the dish and let it cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the lentils, chopped tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, bay leaf and beef back to the dish.

Stir well, then add the stock. Bring the stew to the boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer for 60-70 minutes until the beef is tender and the lentils are soft and cooked. Remove from the heat and adjust the seasoning to taste.

Spoon into individual ceramic serving dishes.
