Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Cook the bacon in a flameproof casserole over medium heat until lightly browned. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  2. Add 1 tbsp oil to the casserole and increase the heat to medium-high. Season the beef with salt and pepper. In batches, add the beef and cook, turning occasionally, about 5 minutes, or until browned. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  4. Return the beef to the casserole. Sprinkle with flour and stir well. Stir in the wine and stock and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the shallots, mushrooms, bacon, herbs, and bay leaf, and cover. Bake for about 2 hours until the meat is very tender.
  5. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, and serve.
