    Just as my mother used to make it! I prefer to quickly flash the sausages and onion in a little hot sunflower oil and allow the bacon to cook in the stew as opposed to cooking it first. A couple of bay leaves and chicken stock instead of water give it a bit more body. And don't forget the Lea & Perrins!  -  20 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    I have made this a number of times. It is dead easy to make, full of flavour and satisfying. I have added whatever comes to hand and it has always turned out well.  -  28 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
