  1. Add the beef, bacon, sausages and pig trotter to a pot. Add oil and saute for 5 minutes. Add the red potatoes, garlic, onion, chilli paste, bayleaves and salt. Saute until onions are translucent, stirring occasionally. Add 1 cup white wine then cover the pot and reduce to a simmer. Check in 20 minutes. Add cup of water. Return to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, topping-up the water as necessary.
