Heat a large stockpot to medium high heat. While heating, season beef with salt and pepper. Add oil and saute beef, stirring frequently, for 7-9 minutes until browned. Remove beef pieces from pot. Add onions, garlic, bay leaves, and thyme to pot and saute until translucent or simply put them into a crockpot with the juices from the browning pot. Stir in the tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. Add celery, and mushrooms. Stir to coat and saute a few more minutes. Add browned beef, water and stock. Reduce to low and simmer covered for several hours, until beef is tender. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
