Preheat your oven to 375° F.
In a large pan, heat the olive oil.
Add the diced onion and carrot and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.
Add the beef and cook until no longer pink. Tilt the pan and try to drain as much liquid from the beef as possible.
With the heat on medium-low, add the garlic, flour, tomato paste, oregano and thyme. Mix well.
Pour the red wine into the pan and add the Worcester sauce, soy sauce, salt and black pepper and mix.
Ad the broth and bring to a simmer cooking for about 20 minutes or until the beef has thickened.
Transfer the beef to a 9x13 inch baking pan or oven safe casserole dish and spread out evenly.
Carefully place the tater tots on top of the meat making sure to cover all of the beef. It's okay if they are piled on top of one another.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes and teh tater totas are crispy and the meat is bubbling around the edges of the pan.
Serve at once.
