Method

  1. Step 1

    Combine the beef, flour and mustard powder in a large bowl. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook the beef, in batches, for 3 mins or until brown all over. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Add the onion, carrot, parsnip and garlic to pan. Cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until onion softens slightly. Add the beer. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 3 mins or until mixture reduces slightly. Stir in stock and tomato paste. Add the beef and thyme. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours. Add barley and cook, covered, for 45 mins or until beef and barley are tender. Spoon beef into a 6-cup (1.5L) round ovenproof dish.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat oven to 220°C. Prepare the scone mix with the milk following packet directions. Shape into 14 balls. Arrange over beef mixture, allowing room for spreading. Top with cheddar. Bake for 12 mins or until golden.
  4. Step 4

    Top with paprika and extra thyme.
