Beef Bourguignon

Submitted by: ZSLAYTON


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 pounds stew beef (chuck or sirloin tip) cut into large chunks
    2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more if needed
    2 carrots, peeled and halved
    2 onions, peeled and halved
    4 cloves garlic, just crushed
    1/4 cup corn starch
    1 (750ml) bottle red wine
    4 cups beef stock
    1 bouquet garni (made from bay leaf, parsley stems, and thyme sprigs)
    1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more if needed
    4-6 slices bacon, cut into lardons
    40 baby onions, peeled
    16 ounces mushrooms

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Remove the meat from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature,
about 20 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large casserole. Working in batches, brown the stew
meat well on all sides, removing as you go. When the meat is done, cook
the carrots and onions in the same pot until tender and lightly golden.
Add the garlic, and cook one minute. Add the flour and cook, stirring for
2 minutes. Pour over the wine and the stock. Add the bouquet garni. Return
the meat to the pot, cover, and transfer to the oven until the meat is very
tender, about 2 hours.

While the meat cooks, prepare the garnish: Heat the oil, in a pan and brown
the bacon, and remove. Add the onions and cook until browned all over,
remove. Finally, brown the mushrooms, and remove. Deglaze the pan with 1/2
cup water, reduce, and then pour over the garnish. Set aside.

When the meat is done, remove it from the pot. Strain the stock, discarding
the vegetables. Pour the liquid back into the pot, and boil until thick
enough to coat a spoon. Return the meat to the pan and add the garnish. Cover,
and simmer until the onions are tender and the flavors have blended,
10 minutes. Adjust the seasonings. Serve.
