3. Pour in the wine vinegar, stock and balsamic vinegar, raise the heat and bring it to the boil.

4. Stir in the spices and sugar, then add the meat and beetroot, season well with salt and plenty of black pepper.

5. Cover the casserole and put it in a preheated oven to 160DegC for 1 1/2 -2 hours.
