I've made this lots of times, it's now a firm family favourite. I usually do the first stage for 15mins and the last for half an hour. I also only use a total of 400ml liquid - mix of stock and wine.

Tasty but the timings are odd - the first step I cooked for 25 mins, but the second also for 25 mins.

The timigs seem odd. Found I had to cook everything for a lot longer to get the flavours out
