Add the mushrooms, crumble the cube of beef stock into the potjie and place the meat on top. Add the wine and (tightly) cover the potjie with its lid.

Let the beef potjie simmer over medium coals for about 2 hours. (Or bake it in an oven at 140 ºC for about 2 hours). Once the meat is tender, stir in the cream cheese. Sprinkle the parsley over the dish and serve immediately.
