Add bacon back in. Reduce heat to medium. Add in the wine and cook until the liquid has reduced by half, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in parsley and tomato paste.
Sprinkle flour over the meat mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Then, add in stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Partially cover the pot and simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Some of the stock will evaporate and will thicken into a nice gravy consistency. Taste and add salt and pepper to your liking.
