"poo tot" doesn't sound like Italian at all...
Can you please elaborate on your descriptions, how it is cooked, what it looks like, if possible which region of Italy this dish originate from?

Doesnt sound Italian to me either. If you google it, it brings up poo and pee lol along with many other non-food related results.

Does this sound like the recipe you are trying to find? It doesn't have all the ingredients you mentioned, but I imagine you could add them easily enough. I found it on the Colavita olive oil website. COLAVITA RECIPES ARCHIVE -Meat and Potato Stew-http://www.colavita.com/recipesArchive/recipe.cfm?id=253

Meat and Potato Stew
"My father's father taught him to make it, he taught me and I will teach my son."--Bob Borella
Origin:Italian
Ingredients:
2 to 3 lbs. round steak or top round (cut into 1" cubes)
6 oz. can tomato paste
8 large white potatoes (cut in quarters)
1/4 cup COLAVITA extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 cup red or white wine
1cup water or beef broth (approx.)
salt/pepper
Preparation:
Heat olive oil in 6 quart pot, add beef, salt, pepper and oregano. Brown well. Add tomato paste, wine and water to almost cover meat. Mix liquids well until gravy thickens slightly. Simmer 45 minutes. Add potatoes and simmer until fork tender, stirring occasionally about 15-20 minutes. Serve hot with fresh Italian bread. It's simple, but gooooood!

Potato in Italian is "patate," so I suspect that what you recall is just part of the name of the recipe, or perhaps it was a shortened version of some longer name.

Yes, it is - but there are still many, many regional dialects in Italy which may have caused a change to the name.
do you have any idea where your teacher came from? Tuscany? Milan? Venice? Genoa?

Squeaker, the word you mention is quite possibly a dialect word. What region did the teacher come from? I agree with others re the patate link. Just in the region I lived in in Italy there would have been 20 ways of saying potato in Italian!

Oooops...I see Clive has come to the same conclusion. I must read threads to theirs!! :)
