When there's a chill in the air, nothing hits the spot like a bowl of beef stew. Our oh-so-savoury version includes tender beef, bacon, mushrooms, carrots and pearl onions in a red wine gravy.

Add mushrooms, yellow onions and garlic to reserved drippings; cook 8 min. or until onions are softened, stirring occasionally. Stir in wine.

Bring to boil, stirring occasionally; cover. Place in oven.
