Total Time:

4hrs 15mins





Skill Level:



  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 - 3 lb. Only Alberta Beef blade roast, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 - 3 cups beef or chicken stock
  • 1 - 2 cups red wine
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1/2 lb baby carrots
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 lb button mushrooms, halved or quartered if large
  • canola or olive oil, for cooking

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 300˚F. Cook the bacon in a Dutch oven set over medium-high heat until crisp; transfer to a bowl. Brown the beef in the pot, sprinkling with salt and pepper, then add the onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and stir to coat.

Add the stock, wine, tomato paste and thyme, cover and braise for 3-4 hours, until the meat is very tender. Add the carrots and return to the oven for 15 minutes, until tender. In another skillet, heat the butter and sauté the mushrooms for 5 minutes, or until golden; stir them into the stew along with the bacon just before serving.
