Cut the beef into small cubes.
Combine the flour, salt and pepper on a plate and roll the pieces of beef.
Heat half the butter in a pot. Add the meat and brown. Add the onions.
Add the red wine, the beef bouillon, the tomatoes, the carrots, the leek, the thyme, the bay leaf and the garlic.
Cook for about one and a half hours.
Cook the mushrooms in a pan with the rest of the butter.
