Heat a large stockpot to medium high heat. While heating, sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Add oil and sauté beef, stirring frequently, for 7-9 minutes until browned. Remove beef pieces from pot. Add onions, garlic, bay leaves, and thyme to pot and sauté until translucent or simply put them into a crock- pot with the juices from the browning pot. Stir in tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. Add celery, and mushrooms. Stir to coat and sauté a few more minutes. Add browned beef, water, and stock. Reduce to low and simmer covered for several hours, until beef is tender. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
TIP: Using a crockpot for this recipe allows you to have a fresh, healthy meal when you get home. You can even brown the meat the night before so preparation time in the morning is only a few minutes.
