"Square meals, not adventurous ones, are what you should seek."
Bryan Miller, NY Times Restaurant Critic
Family Friendly tip - instead of purchasing stew beef ready cut at the market, purchase a chuck roast and cut your own. You'll save money and ultimately calories as you can trim the fat yourself.
Fresh thyme gives this a lovely boost but if your preference is to use dry, two fresh sprigs would be roughly 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried thyme.
While this dish stands well on its own, it really is great served over brown rice, which for half a cup per serving will add approximately 100 calories to the dish.

|4 Tbsp||flour (divided)|
|1 lb||beef chuck (well trimmed, cubed)|
|4 Tbsp||olive oil (divided)|
|1 small||onion (diced)|
|1 lbs||crimini mushrooms (sliced)|
|2 cloves||garlic (minced)|
|1/2 cup||red wine|
|1 15 ounce can||low sodium beef broth|
|2||sprigs fresh thyme|
|1 tsp||fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
Trim and cube the beef and toss in 2 tablespoons of flour to coat. Heat the olive oil in a heavy pan and sear the meat in batches, remove and set aside when brown.
Add the onion and garlic to the pan and saute for 2 or 3 minutes over medium low heat, being careful not to burn the garlic. Add the mushrooms and salt and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the wine and the beef broth, add ground pepper to taste, stir and bring to a boil. Return the beef to the pan and reduce the heat to low.
Add the thyme to the pot, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour with a little water and add to the pot, stirring until well incorporated. Remove from the heat and leave covered for a few minutes prior to serving.
