  In a large bowl combine marinade ingredients and beef. Chill, covered,
  overnight. Drain beef, reserving marinade and vegetables separately;
  pat beef dry and season with salt and pepper.
  Preheat oven to 275/F. Cover bacon and rind with cold water, bring to
  a boil and simmer 3 minutes. Drain. In a large casserole set over
  moderate heat cook bacon lardons in butter and oil, stirring often,
  until golden. With a slotted spoon transfer lardons to paper towels
  to drain.
  In casserole over moderately high heat brown beef in bacon fat, in
  batches. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from casserole. Add
  reserved vegetable mixture and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add
  reserved marinade liquid, tomato paste, reserved bacon rind and salt
  and pepper, bring liquid to a boil and cook in oven, covered, 3

  cooking liquid. Return liquid and meat to casserole.
  Meanwhile make vegetable garnish: In a skillet cover onions with
  water, add 1 tablespoon of butter, sugar and salt and pepper to
  taste. Simmer onions until almost tender. Raise heat to high and
  reduce cooking liquid to 2 tablespoons. Continue to cook onions,
  shaking pan over heat, until golden brown and glazed. In a skillet
  set over moderately high heat, melt remaining butter and add
  mushrooms and salt and pepper to taste. Cook mushrooms, tossing
  often, for 7 minutes, or until firm. Add the onions and mushrooms to
  the casserole. Bring liquid in casserole to a simmer and add enough
  Beurre Manie, bit by bit, stirring constantly, to lightly thicken
  Make croutons: Brush both sides of bread with melted butter, arrange
  on a baking sheet and bake in a 400 F. oven until golden brown. Dip
  edges of bread in Bourguignon sauce and then in parsley.
  To serve: spoon meat and vegetables into shallow serving dishes and
  garnish with croutons.
