This recipe is from episode 27 of Good Chef Bad Chef series 3.
This rustic French dish is so much more than just a beef stew. When its made properly, with loads of mushrooms and shallots and tasty bits of smoky bacon its out of this world. If you have time, you can marinate the beef overnight in red wine. The marinade can be added to the casserole, but make sure you skim it first to remove any impurities.
Season the beef with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a heavy- based casserole over a medium heat. When the oil is sizzling, brown the beef in batches, so that the heat stays high. Transfer the browned beef to a plate.
Add the bacon to the casserole and fry until golden brown.Transfer to a plate with the beef.
Add the butter to the casserole and when it sizzles add the shallots. Fry over a medium heat until the shallots start to soften and begin to colour a lovely golden brown. Lower the heat and add the diced onion and carrot. Sauté for 5 min until they soften.
Add the mushrooms and sauté for 4 min, stirring from time to time.
Stir in the paprika then add the wine and stock. Return the beef and bacon to the casserole, increase the heat until the liquid boils, then lower the heat and simmer gently, uncovered, for 1 ½ hours, or until the meat is tender. Top up with stock or water if drying out.
To thicken the sauce stir in corn flour paste. Simmer for a further 5 min, until sauce thickens. Serve with sour cream and fresh herbs and plenty of buttered new potatoes.
