Comforting, full of flavour and simple to prepare, slow cooked beef is the perfect way to warm up a cold winter’s day!
Place beef in a large bowl, add the herbs and wine. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Drain the beef and put aside the marinade and herbs. Pat the beef dry with paper towels. Heat a large frypan over a medium-high heat. Brown the beef in 3 batches. Remove each batch and place in a casserole dish. Pour over the reserved marinade and herbs. Add the stock and flour. Stir to mix.
Cover the casserole dish and place in oven. Stir every 40 minutes or so, adding water if needed to keep the ingredients just covered. Cook until the beef is almost tender (about 1 hour and 20 minutes).
Heat the oil and butter in a small frypan, add the onions and cook stirring for 10 minutes or until lightly golden (but not soft), remove and set aside. Cook the mushrooms in 2 batches, adding a little more butter if needed, remove and set aside. Add the bacon to the pan and cook until crispy. Add the onions, mushrooms, bacon and water to the beef and stir gently to combine. Cook for a further 20-30 minutes or until the beef is tender.
Match the beef cut to the cooking time you have available. Chuck and boneless shin/gravy beef offer the richest flavour and the most succulent meat.

Both me and my wife actually like cleaning. I must agree that the corners are definitely hard to clean. But the only thing which we actually find really difficult and practically impossible for us to clean are the gutters. I tried a few times to clean them, but I didn't succeed much. I even fell of the roof once, and thank God there was a pile of grass and leafs underneath me to soften the fall. Ever since then we are both afraid to go up there and call this professional gutter cleaning company - http://www.paulsguttercleaningsydney.com.au/ to do it for us. And it turned out to be a double win - I won't break my back and the gutters are actually clean :)
