In the same pan, use the bacon fat to cook the mushrooms over high heat until they are colored, add the flour and cook 1 minute more while stirring. Set aside with the bacon. Then add the pearl onions in the pan with a little water, a pinch of salt and sugar and a knob of butter. Let simmer until liquid has evaporated to glaze them.Meanwhile, in another hot pan, drizzled with vegetable oil, sear the beef cubes to brown them well on all sides. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside in a bowl. Deglaze the pan with red wine, bring to a boil add the thyme and bay leaf and cook until reduced by half.

Be careful not to cook the meat too long in the sauce so that it retains its tenderness coming from its rare cooking.
