Do you cook the potatoes before?
if not is there enough liquid to cook it in the pot?

Looks very simple and I'd like to try it.

Hi,
You will add all the ingredients at the same time and cook. So there will be enough water in the pot.

Hi,
Thanks for all your lovely recipes. I especially adore all your pastry and bread recipes, I’ve probably tried most of them and they all turned out lovely :)
I was wondering if I could try the onions and garlic prior to adding them to this dish and cooking them; and when cooking the beef, should I add salt and pepper to it?

Sure if you like you can cook onion, garlic, salt and pepper with the ground beef.
