- 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.
