  • 6 slices bacon chopped
  • 3 pounds chuck roast cut into 1" cubes
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 carrots cut into 1" chunks
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 1/2 cup pearl onions drained
  • 2 cups beef broth low sodium
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 3 sprigs thyme fresh
  • 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Heat a pan over medium heat. Add bacon, and cook until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate, reserving fat in the pan.
  • Increase heat to high. Add beef to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until seared and caramelized. Add beef to the slow cooker.
  • Return heat to medium. Add garlic, diced onion, and carrots. Saute for 5 minutes or until translucent, while deglazing the bottom of the pan with a spatula.
  • Add bacon, onions, carrots, pearl onions, beef broth, red wine, thyme, salt, pepper, and bay leaf to the slow cooker. Cover, and cook for 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
  • 30 minutes before serving, create a slurry by mixing cornstarch and water. Stir into sauce to thicken it. Remove bay leaf and thyme.
