    1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C. Heat the oil in a large frypan. Season the meats with salt and pepper; brown on all sides. Transfer to a large, deep casserole dish.
    2. Cut 3/4 of the potatoes into thin slices; set on top of the meat. Pour in the stock. Cover and cook in the oven 90 minutes.
    3. Cut the rest of the potatoes into small cubes. After 90 minutes, give the scouse a stir to break up the sliced potatoes (this will help thicken it).
    4. Mix in the uncooked potatoes, onions, carrots and Worcestershire sauce; cover and cook 60-90 minutes more, or until the meat is very tender.
    5. Adjust the seasonings and serve.
