Steps

  • In a large, heavy flameproof casserole, preferably cast iron, over medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the onions until golden. Thoroughly dredge the beef in the flour, covering all the surfaces.
  • Add to the pan and brown on all sides. The flour may cause the onions to burn slightly. This is good and will add lots of flavor.
  • Add the carrots, celery, beef broth, wine, thyme, black pepper, and salt to taste. Reduce heat, partially cover, and barely simmer for 3 to 3 1/2 hours, turning the beef occasionally.
  • Remove the carrots and celery when they are cooked and reserve.
  • When the beef is falling-apart tender, remove it from the broth.
  • Remove the thyme sprigs. Knead the butter and 2 tablespoons flour together until thoroughly combined.
  • Add the mixture to the broth and stir with a wooden spoon until you have a sauce the consistency of buttermilk.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • To serve, slice the beef and arrange on a platter. Cover with some of the sauce.
  • Put the remaining sauce in a bowl or gravy boat. Arrange the carrots and celery attractively on the beef platter.
  • Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs, if you like.
  • Serve immediately.
