  • 2 pounds boneless beef chuck roast, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 4 slices thick-cut hickory smoked bacon, cut into small cubes

  • 1 medium white onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced baby portobello mushrooms

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 2 cups reduced-sodium beef broth

  • 1 cup dry red wine

  • 1 pound carrots, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Toss together beef pieces, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; set aside.

  2. Cook bacon in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until fat is rendered and bacon is beginning to brown, 7 to 8 minutes. Add seasoned beef to bacon and cook, stirring often, until well browned, 7 to 8 minutes. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

  3. Add mushrooms and tomato paste to mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Stir in broth, wine, and carrots and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 40 to 45 minutes or until beef is fork-tender.

  4. Uncover and remove 1/2 cup broth to a 1-cup glass measuring cup. Whisk in flour until completely combined and smooth. Stir flour mixture back into beef mixture and stir constantly until thickened slightly, 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
