Beef & Bacon Stew Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bottle of dry red wine (Our Double Diamond Merlot would go perfectly)
  • 2 1/2 lb boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 8 oz bacon
  • 3 medium red onions
  • 3 medium carrots (or 1 package baby carrots)
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 4 large sprigs of fresh thyme or 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp white Miso paste or 3 tbsp Miso broth (Japanese section at HEB, Miso & Easy Sauce)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves

RECIPE

  1. Open bottle of red wine and pour yourself a glass.
  2. Cut chuck roast into 2"x2" cubes. They will look like large chunks (try for relatively even sized pieces)
  3. Quarter 3 red onions. Peel and cut up carrots.
  4. Crush 7 cloves of garlic and add to bowl with carrots.
  5. Cut bacon into one inch pieces and add to Dutch oven. Cook over medium heat until crisp (11-13 minutes). Remove bacon, leaving grease in pan.
  6. Increase heat and place meat in one layer to brown for 5-7 minutes. Then remove from pan. 
  7. Reduce heat and place onions in pan on side and cook (undisturbed) for 2-3 minutes. Turn to other side and repeat for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Add carrots, garlic, thyme, and Miso seasoning with salt. Don't skip the Miso. It's an important ingredient.
  9. Sprinkle vegetables with 2 tbsp flour and stir for 30 seconds. 
  10. Add the rest of the bottle of wine and cook for 2 minutes.
  11. Nestle beef and bacon into the pot and add just enough water to barely cover.
  12. Cook covered in 300 degree oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  13. Uncover, stir, and return to oven until beef is very tender (30-60 minutes)
  14. Add more miso, salt, and pepper if needed.
  15. Serve with crusty bread or over mashed potatoes.
