Use Simple Beef Stock, the recipe for which is posted on this site. Use a wine that you would drink -- not cooking wine. And the better the cut of beef, the better the stew. As the beef is combined with braised onions and sauteed mushrooms, all that is needed to complete your main course is a bowl of potatoes or noodles and lots of good bread for the sauce.

My gosh, so delicious! Well worth struggling with the directions. Yes, the directions were difficult but instead of fighting with them I watched a couple videos then it all made sense. One thing, I didn't cook the onions separately, I had turned the oven down to because I wanted to be able to go for a walk and thought the onions would be safe, so when I browned them I threw them in along with the mushrooms.
And I didn't blanch the bacon, I just cooked it and drained the excess fat. Omg, I'm sure it will go more smoothly next time, I hope there will be many next times for this recipe. I thought of Julia the whole time I was preparing it. Directions are too hard to follow in paragraph form. Also, even if directions were numbered, they are still hard to follow. There are not enough carrots in this recipe. Browning the flour in oven is confusing. Plus, why do it? Just coat the meat and brown it in pan before simmering and braising.
Sorry, Julia. I'm having a terrible time trying to understand the cooking directions. Could the directions please be clarified? At what point do you wash out the casserole and return the beef and bacon to it? Is this done after the beef has cooked in the oven until done? I'm very confused. This is one of my favorite fall and winter meals. This recipe is easy to follow and delicious!
One of my household favorites. In her volume, The Way to Cook, she says to omit the onions if you are doing the pearl onions. Since others may be confused about the onions 1 onion sliced in addition to pearl onions , I thought I would clarify.
In Julia Child's original recipe, there is only small white onions 1 in. Here are the instructions for mushrooms and onions: Trim mushroom stems, drop mushrooms in a large basin of cold water, swish about for a moment, lift out into a colander, and dry on a towel.
Cut the caps into quarters, and the stems on the bias. Heat oil and butter in a skillet until butter foam begins to subside, add he mushrooms, and toss over high heat for 3 or 4 minutes to brown the mushrooms very lightly. Remove to a side dish until needed, then toss with the salt. Drop the onions into boiling water, bring rapidly back to a boil for several seconds to loosen their skins. Place in one layer in a heavy saucepan; add the butter and salt and enough water to come halfway up.
Cover and simmer very slowly for 20 to 30 minutes, or until onions are tender. Set aside, saving cooking liquid.

Dry beef in paper towels; it will not brown if it is damp. Heat fat in casserole until almost smoking. Add it to the lardons. In the same fat, brown the sliced vegetables. Pour out the excess fat. Then sprinkle on the flour and toss again to coat the beef lightly.
Set casserole uncovered in middle position of preheated oven for 4 minutes. Toss the meat again and return to oven for 4 minutes this browns the flour and coves the meat with a light crust. Remove casserole and turn oven down to degrees.
Stir in wine and 2 to 3 cups stock, just enough so that the meat is barely covered. Add the tomato paste, garlic, herbs and bacon rind. Bring to a simmer on top of the stove. Preparation See above under ingredients could not fit!!!!! Cover casserole and set in lower third of oven. Regulate heat so that liquid simmers very slowly for 3 to 4 hours. The meat is done when a fork pierces it easily. While the beef is cooking, prepare the onions and mushrooms. Be careful not to break their skins.
You cannot expect them to brown uniformly. Cover and simmer slowly for 40 to 50 minutes until the onions are perfectly tender but hold their shape, and the liquid has evaporated. Remove herb bouquet and set onions aside. Wipe out skillet and heat remaining oil and butter over high heat. As soon as you see butter has begun to subside, indicating it is hot enough, add mushrooms.
Toss and shake pan for 4 to 5 minutes. As soon as they have begun to brown lightly, remove from heat. When the meat is tender, pour the contents of the casserole into a sieve set over a saucepan.
Wash out the casserole and return the beef and lardons to it. Distribute the cooked onions and mushrooms on top. Skim fat off sauce in saucepan. Simmer sauce for a minute or 2, skimming off additional fat as it rises. If too thin, boil it down rapidly. If too thick, mix in a few tablespoons stock.
Taste carefully for seasoning. Pour sauce over meat and vegetables. Cover and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, basting the meat and vegetables with the sauce several times. Serve in casserole, or arrange stew on a platter surrounded with potatoes, noodles or rice, and decorated with parsley.
