Instructions
  1. Cube the meat and place in a large bowl, season with pepper. Add the flour and toss the meat until it is coated. Set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based saucepan or casserole dish with a lid, over a medium heat. Add beef and any flour from the bottom of the bowl and brown for 2-3 minutes. Add onion, garlic and carrot and cook for one minute more.
  3. Add the stock, Dijon, Worcestershire sauce and dried herbs to the pot. Stir to combine and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  4. Add potato, bring to the boil, then cover and reduce heat to very low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 1 and ½ hours until the meat is very tender.
  5. Divide between 4 bowls and garnish with parsley to serve. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days in an airtight container or freeze to defrost for another meal.
