Warm 2 tbs olive oil in oven-safe casserole dish over medium high heat

Remove beef from dish and add remaining olive oil
Reduce heat slightly and add onions, cooking until soft- about 8 minutes
Add the garlic, stir for 2 minutes
Add the paprika, tomato paste and bay leaves and stir through
Add the beef stock, carrot and potatoes and bring to a simmer

Mix the flour with an equal amount of cold water to form a smooth paste. Add to the pot and stir through.
Transfer pot to the oven and cook cover for 2hrs then remove the lid and cook for a further 30 minutes if the liquid needs to reduce.
