  • 2 pounds lean beef stew meat
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour1
  • sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 4 bacon slices
  • 2 cups chopped onion2
  • 1 cup sliced carrot
  • 4 garlic coves minced
  • 14 ounces beef broth or bone broth
  • 1 ½ cup dry red wine
  • 16 ounces mushrooms stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 Bay leaves


  • Combine arrowroot with 1 tsp. salt and ¼ pepper in a large ziplock bag. Add beef, seal and shake to coat.
  • Cook 2 slices of bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat until crisp. Set bacon slices aside and add half of beef mixture to the bacon drippings, cook 5 minutes, or until brown on all sides. 
  • Remove the beef and keep warm. Repeat this process with the last pieces of bacon and coated beef. Add the second batch of browned beef to the first, keeping warm. When bacon has cooled, crumble or chop into ¼-inch pieces
  • Add onions and carrots to pan, sauté 5 minutes; add garlic and continue mixing until fragrant, around 60 seconds. Stir in the wine and broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. 
  • Return crumbled bacon and beef to the pan along with another 1 teaspoon of sea salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, mushrooms, tomato paste, thyme and bay leaves bring to a boil. 
  • Cover and reduce heat to a simmer for 45 minutes. Uncover, stir and cook another 60 minutes or until beef is tender. Discard bay leaves and serve immediately.


  1. To make this recipe gluten or grain free, use arrowroot powder.
  2. For traditional Beef Bourguignon, use pearl onions. If you can find them frozen, these work well too and save time peeling.
