This can be cooked in the oven or on the rangetop. It is even more flavorful if made a day ahead, and the fat is easier to lift off the pan juices if it's cold. I usually reheat it while making some potato pancakes.

I made this for Sunday dinner last night and it was great. I did have to sub a few items, as I didn''t have parsnips, cloves or pearl onions. I brown the meat which I seasoned with garlic, salt and pepper, in about 2 tab. olive oil, on stove top. Then added the broth, and a large onion cut into wedges. Then covered it and placed it in a 350 degree oven and cooked about 1 1/2 hours, started later in the day then expected, so increased temp. I then added baby carrots and quartered potatoes, and cooked another hour 15 minutes. I then removed the meat and veggies, added a little water(mixed with some flour, salt and pepper) to the juices to make a gravy. Served with corn and it was an awesome dinner.
