Serves: 6
Total Calories: 200


1 large onion, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 sprigs thyme
2 bay leaves
3 cups dry red wine
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds beef chuck roast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
5 slices bacon, chopped
16 small (boiling) onions, peeled
2 tablespoons flour
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup beef broth
8 ounces button mushrooms
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
boiled potato for serving


1. In a glass bowl, combine the onion, carrots, herbs, wine, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the beef, cover, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Remove the meat from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Strain the marinade, discard the vegetables, and reserve the liquid.

2. In a large, heavy casserole or Dutch oven, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the bacon and whole onions and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a dish. Increase the heat to medium-high and brown the meat in batches on all sides. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a dish.

3. Add the flour to the hot fat and stir vigorously. Return the beef to the pan and add the marinade, stirring well. Bring to a brisk simmer and add the garlic and broth. When the liquid bubbles, reduce heat to a low simmer, cover, and cook for 2 hours. Add the bacon, onions, mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 30 minutes. Serve garnished with the parsley and accompanied with the boiled potatoes.

TO MAKE AHEAD: Let cool completely, cover, and refrigerate for up to 5 days. Freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

TO REHEAT: If frozen, thaw in the microwave or in the refrigerator. Reheat in a microwave or in a preheated 350°F oven until heated through.
