For the Mustard Mash:
908g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
142ml hot water or beef stock

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees/gas mark 3. Heat a large, heatproof casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the beef and stir fry until brown on all sides.
Add the garlic, onions, carrots and stock.
Season well and add the bay leaf and dried mixed herbs.
Cover tightly and cook in the oven for 2-2.5 hours, stirring occasionally, until the beef is tender.

Meanwhile make the mash by boiling the potatoes in a large pan of lightly salted water for 15-20 minutes.
Drain and return to the saucepan with the hot water/stock and mustard. Mash until smooth and season well.

Spoon the mash into warmed serving plates or bowls and ladle over the stew. Garnish with chopped parsley and add the steamed cabbage.
