In a large pot, add oil, beef and garlic and sauté the ingredients until the beef becomes browned.
In the same pot, add beef broth, tomato paste, thyme, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaves. Mix everything together well and bring the mixture to a boil. Then reduce the heat to medium and cover the stew letting it simmer for about an hour. Make sure to keep stirring so nothing will burn.
In another pot, add the butter, potatoes, onions, peas and carrots and sauté the vegetables until they become golden. Then add the vegetables to the beef stew.
Simmer the stew uncovered until the vegetables and the beef are very tender, for about 40 minutes. Discard the bay leaves and sprinkle the stew with parsley and serve.
