Add bacon lardons to pan and cook until they are lightly browned, add to casserole dish. Finally put diced beef into frying pan and lightly brown each side of cubed beef then put into casserole dish.Make up the beef stock to approx. half to three quarters of a pint, but the red wine should make up about half of the liquid.Bring to a gentle simmer in the frying pan and add the mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the ingredients in the casserole dish, add your bay leaf (optional). Cover and cook for approx two to two and a half hours at Regulo 4 Electric 180 stirring after the first hour.
