  1. Step 1

    Place flour on a plate and season with salt and pepper. Heat half the oil in a large oven-proof casserole dish over medium-high heat. Dust beef in flour and cook in batches for 5 mins or until browned. Remove to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Heat remaining oil in the same dish. Add onion, carrot, celery and cook for 5 mins or until just tender. Add garlic and cook for 1 min. Return beef to the dish along with stock, tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, vinegar and rosemary. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 hours or until meat is tender.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C. Arrange potato slices over the casserole so they are slightly overlapping and cover the meat completely. Brush potato with butter and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 45 mins or until potato is golden and crisp.
  4. Step 4

    Serve casserole with steamed green beans.
