This is one of my favorite comfort meals my mom ( aka Boo Beans, Bert, Bert Bean, Boosie, ect ect ect) makes, everytime I make it I think of her. It doesn't hurt that Nick Nick loves it as well.

2lbs stew meat
can of tomatoes OR a 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 cup of beef stock
1 tsp worchestershire sauce
1-2 cloves garlic
1 medium sliced onion
bay leaves
1 Tbl salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp paprika ( using Hungarian Paprika gives it a great flavor as well!)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp basil OR thyme
dash allspice or cloves

1/4-1/2 cup dry red wine
1/3 cup COLD water
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Brown the meat in bacon grease or shortening. Add next 12 ingredients ( I stick the garlic and bay leaves together on a toothpick to make it easy to get them out later) and cover and simmer for hour and a half, stir occasionally to prevent sticking and add water as needed. Remove garlic and bay leaves. Add carrots and potatoes. Cover for another 30 min. Slowly stir in a mixture of 1/3 cup COLD water with 2 tablespoon
