  1. Brown the bacon pieces in oil with the pearl onions and mushrooms. Add the flour, then the red wine and light brown stock. Season with salt and pepper, add a clove of garlic, thyme and bay leaf. Cook for 25 minutes, stirring often so that it doesn't stick.

  3. Reduce; add the sauce and garnish; simmer for 4-5 minutes and serve immediately.
