  5. 2 cups chopped onion
  6. 1½ cups chopped celery
  7. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  8. 3½ pounds boneless chuck roast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  9. 3½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  10. 1½ teaspoons ground black pepper, divided
  11. 1½ cups beef stock
  12. 1½ cups dry red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon
  13. 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  14. 3 tablespoons brandy
  15. 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  16. 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  17. 4 bay leaves
  18. 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  19. 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  20. 1½ sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  21. 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  22. 1 teaspoon water
  1. In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups boiling water and mushrooms. Let stand until softened, about 30 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve, reserving liquid. Chop mushrooms, and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 300°.
  3. In a large Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add carrot, onion, and celery; cook until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Remove from pan.
  4. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to pan. Season beef with 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Add one-third of beef to pan; cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Repeat with remaining beef.
  5. Add mushrooms, mushroom liquid, carrot mixture, beef, beef stock, wine, tomato paste, brandy, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves to Dutch oven; stir well. Cover, and bake until beef is very tender, about 2½ hours. Discard bay leaves. Stir in parsley, vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt, and remaining ½ teaspoon pepper. Remove from oven.
  6. Preheat oven to 425°.
  7. Place 6 (1½ cup) oven-proof soup bowls on a large rimmed baking sheet. Spoon stew into bowls, leaving ½-inch space from the top. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry; cut 6 squares. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 teaspoon water. Brush edges of bowls with egg mixture. Place pastry over hot stew. Cut an “X” in the top of pastry. Brush pastry with egg mixture. Sprinkle with remaining ½ teaspoon salt.
  8. Bake until pastry is puffed and golden brown, about 10 minutes.
