In a Pan fry the Onions, Garlic and Peppers in some olive oil until they soften then add the mince and fry until brown.
Add glass of wine gradually until it simmers down and crumble in the beef stock cube (you can also mix it in the with the red wine before hand and pour it in together)
Next transfer the meat mixture to a big sauce pan and add the tin of tomatoes (if you have whole tomatoes then bash then with a fork)
