Heat the oil in a flame-proof casserole dish and brown the beef over a high heat for 4-5 minutes.
Reduce the heat and add all vegetables, garlic and jerk seasoning. Stir well to coat evenly.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
Pop the lid on and cook in the oven for about an hour and a half, or until the beef is tender.
Serve with boiled rice.
