  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large, heavy-based, flameproof casserole dish over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook beef, in batches, for 5 to 6 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Heat remaining oil in dish. Add onion, garlic, carrot and celery. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion has softened.
  5. Return beef to dish. Add flour. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  6. Add potato, bay leaves, thyme and rosemary. Stir in wine and stock. Cover dish. Bring to the boil.
  7. Transfer to oven. Bake for 2 hours or until beef is tender.
  8. Remove and discard bay leaves. Serve with crusty bread.
For a little bit of a kick throw in some chili or tabasco sauce. 
You could cook the casserole at 160C/140C for 3 hours. You could use beef chuck, skirt, topside or blade instead of gravy beef.
