1/2 lb. thick-cut bacon, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces1-1/2 to 2 pounds stew beef, cut into 1-inch cubes1 large onion, diced2 cloves garlic, minced5 large carrots, sliced on a bias in 2-inch chunks1/4 cup flour, salt and pepper for seasoning the beef1 bottle of red wine, (minus a glass for the cook)4 cups beef broth2 tablespoons tomato paste3 stems fresh rosemary2 tablespoons butter1/2 pounds crimini mushrooms, sliced


(1) Preheat the oven to 325ºF.

(2) In a large Dutch oven cook the bacon pieces until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pot and let drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

(3) Leave 2-3 tablespoons of bacon fat in the pan for browning the stew beef. Add the stew beef to the hot pot. Salt and pepper the beef and brown on all sides. Work in batches, as needed, so that the meat is seared, not steamed.

(4) Once the beef is browned on all sides, remove from the pot. Add the diced onions, and sauté until softened. Add the garlic and cook for two more minutes. Add the carrots, seared beef, and crispy bacon back into the pot. Add the flour and stir until everything is coated.

(5) Add the red wine, broth, tomato paste, whole rosemary stems and cover. Roast in the low temperature oven for 2-1/2 hours.

(6) Sauté the mushrooms in a skillet with butter until just browned. Keep warm. Add to the cooked dish before serving.

(7) Serve the beef burgundy over a hearty scoop of mashed potatoes or buttered, egg noodles. Or, serve as a stew with a side of buttered French bread.
