  • 1/4 pound bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 pounds chuck roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3 cups red wine

Sauté bacon in a heavy pot over medium-high heat until brown and crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate. Pat beef dry and season generously with salt and pepper; coat with flour. Brown beef in bacon fat, working in batches to avoid overcrowding, 2 to 3 minutes per batch. Remove beef with a slotted spoon to a plate.

Add onions to the pot and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and thyme, cooking for 1 minute; stir in tomato paste. Return bacon and beef to the pot. Add wine, bay leaves and enough stock to cover. Bring to a boil, cover and cook over a low simmer for 1 1/2 hours.

Stir in carrots, mushrooms and pearl onions. Continue cooking until beef and vegetables are tender, another 30 to 45 minutes. Season to taste and serve.
