Preheat the oven to 160ºC/300ºF/Gas 2. Put a little oil and the knob of butter into a pot or casserole pan. Add the onion and all the sage leaves and fry for 3 or 4 minutes.

Toss the meat in a little seasoned flour, then add it to the pan with all the vegetables, the tomato purée, wine and stock, and gently stir together.

Season generously with freshly ground black pepper and just a little salt. Bring to the boil, place a lid on top, and then cook in the preheated oven for 3 hours until the meat is tender. Serve in stew bowls.
