From Huey Hewitson. I have made some changes to suit us which is to omit 2 celery stalks diced and I cut the onion in chunky wedges and have added potatoes, have made potatoes and celery optional,

Another 5 stars from me. This is delicious and oh so easy. As promised in the title you just chuck everything in a pot and shove it into the oven. It came out with tender beef and well cooked veggies. I didn't have any parsley so topped the bowl with a small green onion. DH and I both loved it and it will be making more appearances at this house.

I used 1/2 dried thyme in place of fresh. Did not stir while in 375 F oven b/c we went for a walk and it was fine. Otherwise made as posted.1 kg is about 2 pounds of meat. Thanks ImPat for a tasty, simple, and hearty meal.

I omitted the salt. I used dried thyme. I used the optional celery but omitted the potatoes. The taste of the beef, veggies and gravy are so good. Tonight we ate it with rice. So good. Thanks I'mPat :) Made for the Aussie Swap for November 2010
