- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Pat beef stew meat dry. Season generously with salt and pepper.
- Heat a Dutch oven over medium high heat on the stovetop. Add diced bacon and cook until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside.
- Pan sear the sides of the beef stew meat in the bacon fat. Remove beef and set aside.
- In the same Dutch oven, add onions and brown. Add carrots and garlic. Cook for a minute. If the pan gets dry, add a couple tablespoons of water.
- Add tomato paste and flour and mix thoroughly. Toss in bay leaf and thyme.
- Pour in wine and let reduce for a couple minutes, turning heat down as liquid starts to bubble.
- Add beef broth and stir.
- Carefully place the beef and bacon back into the pan, making sure that the meat is fully submerged in the liquid. Cover and place in the oven. Cook for 2 hours.
- Meanwhile, heat a medium frying pan with vegetable oil. Add pearl onions and brown.
- Toss in the mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt. When the mushrooms begin to shrink, add a tbsp of butter. Stir and allow the mushrooms to slightly brown.
- When the beef bourguignon has finished cooking, add the pearl onions and mushrooms to the Dutch oven. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles.
