“This is one of the best tasting stews I've made recently. I brown the meat in 4 batches using 1 T oil each. Boy, do I like "sopping up" the juice with a nice hearty piece of bread. Ummmmm!”

  1. Place flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Heat 1 T oil in heavy medium pot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Working in batches coat meat with flour mixture, place in pot and brown evenly (be careful not to crowd), remove and set aside in medium bowl. Add additional oil as needed while browning remaining meat.
  2. After beef is browned,add onions and saute until transparent (about 4 minutes). Stir in tomato paste, then add wine. Bring to a boil and deglaze pot, scraping up any browned bits.
  3. Add broth, Splenda brown sugar(or regular dark brown sugar)and beef with any accumulated juices. Bring to a boil. Cover partially, reduce heat and simmer 1 hour.
  4. Add potatoes and carrots, simmer uncovered 30 minutes.
  5. Add mushroom and continue simmering and 15-20 minutes until beef and vegetables are tender.
