  1. Step 1

    Heat half the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook, in 3 batches, for 5 mins or until browned all over. Transfer to a heatproof plate.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the same pan over high heat. Add the leek and chorizo and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until softened. Add the garlic and paprika and cook for 1 min. Add the tomato, stock and thyme. Season. Stir to combine. Bring to the boil. Return the beef to the pan. Reduce heat to low. Bring to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 1¼ hours. Add the zucchini and cook, uncovered, for 15 mins.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, to make the parsnip mash, place the parsnip in a large saucepan over high heat. Add enough water to cover. Bring to the boil. Cook for 20 mins or until tender. Drain. Transfer the parsnip to a food processor or blender. Add the butter, milk and garlic and process or blend until smooth. Season.
  4. Step 4

    Divide the parsnip mash and casserole among serving bowls. Sprinkle with the extra thyme leaves and serve with the bread.
