Dredge meat in flour.  Brown on all sides in oil.  Remove as browned and brown onions.  In remaining oil add flour, salt and mustard.  Cook for 2 minutes.  Then add the tomato paste mixed with water.  Stir constantly.  Pour over meat in oven-proof casserole.  Bake covered at 350F for 1 hour.   Add carrots and vegetables.  Bake another hour.

Potatoes can be added with the meat, but I prefer to cook them separately.  In fact, I made baked potatoes this time and it was a nice accompaniment.
