Yield: 4 to 6 servings

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, for frying,
plus more to drizzle
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 to 3 pounds beef chuck shoulder roast, cut
into 2-inch pieces (this cut is also called
chuck shoulder pot roast and
chuck roast boneless)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 bottle good quality dry red wine
(recommended: Burgundy)
8 fresh thyme sprigs
6 garlic cloves, smashed
1 orange, zest removed in 3 (1-inch) strips
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 bay leaves
2 1/2 cups beef stock
9 small new potatoes, scrubbed clean
and cut in half
1/2 pound carrots, peeled and sliced
2 cups frozen pearl onions, a large handful
1 pound white mushrooms, cut in half
1/2 pound garden peas, frozen or fresh
Fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped, for garnish
Horseradish Sour Cream, recipe follows, for garnish
Toasted Peasant Bread, recipe follows, for serving

Preheat a large heavy-bottomed saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-
high heat with the oil and butter.
While the pan is heating, arrange the flour on a large dish. Season the
cubed beef with some salt and freshly ground black pepper and then toss
in the flour to coat. Shake off the excess flour and add the beef chunks
in a single layer to the hot pan, being careful not to over crowd the pan,
you might have to work in batches. Thoroughly brown all of the cubes
on all sides. Once all the meat has been browned remove it to a plate
and reserve.
Add the wine to the pan and bring up to a simmer while you scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon being sure to loosen up all those tasty bits. Once the wine has gotten hot add the browned meat, thyme, smashed garlic, orange zest strip, ground cloves, freshly ground black
pepper and salt, to taste, bay leaves and beef stock. Bring the mixture
up to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook uncovered
until the liquids start to thicken, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cover and
cook on low heat for 2 1/2 hours.
After 2 hours add halved potatoes, sliced carrots, pearl onions and mushrooms, along with a pinch of sugar to balance out the acid from
the red wine. Turn the heat up slightly and simmer, uncovered, for
30 minutes more, until the vegetables and meat are tender. Add the
frozen peas during the last minute of cooking. Season with salt and
pepper and remove the thyme sprigs.
To serve, place the stew in a soup bowl, garnish with parsley, drizzle
with olive oil and add a dollop of Horseradish Sour Cream. Right
before serving add a slice of Toasted Peasant Bread, half way sub-
merged in the stew.

Horseradish Sour Cream:

1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Chives, finely chopped, as garnish

Combine sour cream, prepared horseradish and a drizzle of olive oil
in a small bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Season with salt
and pepper. Add a dollop of the mixture on top of the stew and
garnish with chopped chives.

Toasted Peasant Bread:

1 loaf peasant bread, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
Extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, halved
Chopped parsley leaves

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
Put a sheet pan in the oven so that it gets good and hot.
Place the bread slices on the hot sheet pan. Drizzle the bread with the
extra-virgin olive oil bake for 5 minutes, until the bread is nicely toasted.
Rub the bread slices with the garlic cloves, and discard garlic. Sprinkle
with parsley and serve.
