In a large skillet, sauté the bacon over moderate heat for about 3-5 minutes or until light brown. Scoop out, chop and add to the crockpot.
Cut the beef into 2 inch cubes and pat dry the cubes with a paper towel
Heat the bacon fat and sauté the beef cubes a few at a time until browned on all sides. Scoop out the cubes as each batch is browned and add to the crockpot. Repeat until all the cubes have been browned.
In the same skillet using the same fat, brown the onions for 2 minutes and dump into the crockpot.
Add the wine and beef stock so that the meat is just covered with the liquids
Add the tomato paste, garlic, thyme and bay leaf & xanthan gum or chosen thickener. Add carrots if using.I use two tablespoons of regular flour. (It adds 1 gram of carbs to each serving). Feel free to use a 1/4 tsp of zanthan gum if you prefer.
Turn the crockpot on low and leave it alone for six to seven hours. Turn to high for the last hour to boil out the last of the alcohol (if there is any left).
Wash and slice the mushrooms. Saute in butter and add to the crockpot pot. Don't skip this step.
Cover and let simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
Give it a good stir, fish out the bay leaf and discard. Serve in deep bowls with parsley sprigs on top.
Leaving the carrots out will change the nutritional information by one gram of carbs per serving. But they are a traditional part of the meal.
