**** 4 1/2 HOURS BEFORE SERVING ****
Make the Bouquet Garni by combining all ingredients and wrapping them in cheesecloth. secure tightly.
Remove the meat from the marinade. In a large casserole, heat the olive oil and sauté the bacon and shallots. When the fat starts to run from the bacon, add the beef and brown all over. Strain the marinade and add the vegetables to the casserole.
Stir them around and let them brown a little; add the bouquet garni and the liquid from the marinade.
The beef should be just covered with the liquid; if necessary, add more wine. Season with salt and pepper.
Cover the pot, using a sheet of oiled parchment paper, then lid the pot to seal hermetically. Heat, and bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 3 hours or longer. Discard the garni.
