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.
