Where no amounts have been allocated it is all dependent on your taste ie. how sweet, sour or spicy you want your meal
Chop onion and garlic fine. Ensure they coated with oil in a sauce pan. Allow your onion and garlic to soften over medium heat. Once they soften add your beef pieces to the sauce pan until properly cook. Then add salt and pepper with a little water. Once your meat is cooked add potatoes with spices and bay leaves, origanum or Italian herbs are great to add along if you have (optional). Allow your potatoes to soften cover with at least two cups of water. Stir occasionally. Check on your saucepan to ensure your meat does not burn. Once your potatoes have soften add tomato soup mix. Stir in thoroughly to prevent any lumps. Cover with more water if needed. Add sugar in dependent on how sweet you would like your breedie. Stir until sauce thickens by this time your meat will be soft and tender.
Cook your sweet potato whichever makes sense to you. I have tried butter steamed with cinnamon. but my method is simple. Boil your sweet potato with cinnamon stick as is. with skin on. Once soften then you can add either olive oil,butter and more cinnamon spice. You can use two cups of water or more as long as your sweet potato is covered with enough water.
Chop onion,tomato and apple finely. In a bowl add your chopped ingredients . Add vinegar half covered lemon juice half covered. Add as much sugar as you want .Taste and stir until the sugar dissolves.Make sure you mix well.
