Beef and Vegetables with Pastry Topping

I love winter! not for the weather (hate being too cold) but for the food, all those tasty stews and soups, pies, cakes & puddings, the list goes on :)  this dish is so good and it has pastry, bonus


1 kilo stewing beef  cut in cubes
2 onions chopped
2 carrots chopped
1 can diced tomato
1/2 cup beef stock
sprig rosemary finely chopped
puff pastry sheet
mash potato to serve

brown beef in batches & set aside. in same pan add onion & cook until softened, add carrot and cook about 10 minutes. put beef back in along with tomato, stock and rosemary. salt & pepper to taste. cook on low heat approx 2 hours or until beef is tender. just before it's ready heat pastry sheet until golden, serve on top of stew with mash potatoes.
