Beef in Red Wine
Transfer turkey bacon and beef to a 3 1/2 quart or larger slow cooker. Add onion, grated carrot, garlic, wine, bay leaf, thyme and parsley.
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.
When beef is almost done, cook potatoes in boiling water to cover until almost tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add carrots and green beans. Continue to cook for another 4 to 5 minutes.
Drain vegetables and keep warm. Meanwhile, lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with butter flavored cooking spray. Add the mushrooms and saute over high heat until mushrooms are tender and all liquid is absorbed.
Transfer beef to a carving board and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing into thin, against the grain, slices. Arrange beef slices on a heated serving platter. Discard clove stuck onion, bay leaves and thyme sprigs.
Stir cooked vegetables and mushrooms into pan juice of the slow cooker to warm. Spoon the vegetables and pan juices over the beef.
Season to taste with pepper. Serve immediately.
Makes 6 servings with leftovers.
