[Cooking] Brussels sprouts with ham

This is an old family favourite, it might even go back to my gran (mum's mum). It's very simple.
You will need:
Brussels sprouts (mine came in my organic vegbox this week, still on the stalk)
Cooked ham, diced
half an onion, finely chopped
glove of garlic, finely chopped
olive oil
tomato paste
veg stock
salt, pepper, freshly grated nutmeg
(new) potatoes

Wash the sprouts and take off the out leaves if necessary, cut the bigger ones in half.
In a deepish pan on medium heat fry the onion, garlic and ham until the onion is soft, stir in a good dollop of tomato paste and add enough veg stock to cover the pan about 1cm deep. Add the sprouts, season to taste, bring to a simmer and reduce the heat. Put on a lid and simmer until the sprouts are tender but still firm, about 10 mins.
Served with boiled (new) potatoes.
