Peel the onions and chop roughly. Heat 2tbsp olive oil in a large pan. Add the onions to the pan and fry until they are softened and just beginning to colour, about 5 minutes.

While the onions cook, cut the chosen meat into dice-sized cubes, place in a plastic bag with 1-2tbsp of seasoned plain flour and toss until evenly covered. Chop the bacon into small strips.

Add to the onions and keep on a high heat until all the pieces are sealed and browned, about 10 minutes.

When they are browned, add ALL the other ingredients to the pan and give it a good stir. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat so the mixture is simmering for a further 20-25 minutes with a lid on. Alternatively, simmer for 5 minutes on the stove then transfer the covered pan to a preheated oven (Gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C) for 25-30 minutes.
