Beef in red wine gravy

This is one of my husband's favorite meals, and it is a crock-pot meal, which I love!

1.5 lbs of beef stew meat (you can change the amount based on how much you want to make), 1 onion, mushrooms, red wine, corn starch, onion soup mix, and egg noodles.

Chop up your onion

In the crock-pot layer onions, stew meat, and sprinkle with the onion soup mix.

Cover with 3 T of corn starch

Cover with 1.5 C of red wine (I have used cooking wine or real wine and not noticed a difference in taste)

Cook in crock-pot for 10-12 hours on the low setting or 5-6 hours on the high setting.

Optional: We like this with mushrooms, so in the last hour of cooking I chop some mushrooms and stir in.

You serve this over pasta, egg noodles are good. This time I tried the whole grain egg noodles, and they were good.

And serve!
Trust me, it tastes a lot better than it looks! This makes plenty, about 6 servings.
I calculate the meat portion to be 5 WW points, then add the amount you have in your pasta.
Wonderful for busy days and cold weather days!

P.S. It is high time I see that child of yours again.

The end.
