Add 1 tablespoon oil to dish and cook celery, carrots and onion for 8 minutes. Stir in paste then flour. Cook for 1 minute. Add wine and Guinness then simmer until reduced by 1/2. Add stock and simmer until reduced by 1/2. Return beef to pan with bay leaf and bring to a simmer.

Add bacon and shallots and cook, stirring, for 8 minutes or until shallots are softened. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until soft. Add bacon mixture to cooking liquid and simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes or until thickened. Return beef to dish and reheat.
