Method
  • Preheat the oven to 150C/ 130C Fan/Gas 2. Heat the oil in a large flameproof, ovenproof pan. Fry the beef until brown – in batches if necessary. Reserve.

  • In the same pan, fry the lardons, mushrooms and shallots for 5 mins. Add the garlic and tomato purée and fry for 1 min, stirring.

  • Return the beef to the pan. Add the thyme, bay leaf, carrot, grape juice 
and vinegar. Bring to the boil, cover and cook in 
the oven for 2 hrs.

  • Remove the carrot. Using a handheld blender, purée it with a little cooking liquid, then return to the pan.

  • Put the pan on the hob and stir in the cornflour. Bring to the boil, stirring, until thickened. Top with 
a thyme sprig and serve with mash and green veg.
