Beef Burgundy


6 ounces bacon (or salt pork)
3 pounds beef chuck roast, trimmed and cut into 2 inch cubes
1 1/2 Cups shallots, about 8 shallots
2 large carrots, one diced and one cut into 2-inch chunks
4 cloves garlic, diced
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 Cup Brandy, plus 2 Tablespoons
2/3 bottle Pinot Noir (You could use the whole bottle, but I wanted some to drink.)
2-3 Cups beef stock
Handful of fresh parsley
2 bay leaves
4 whole cloves
1 1/2 Cups pearl onions, frozen is fine
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, cremini, button, or shiitake will work
6 ounces butter (4 for the beginning and 2 for the sauce)
3 Tablespoons flour (combine with the butter for the sauce)
Salt and pepper (probably won't need much salt)
