Beef Bourguignon

This is a slow cooked classic.  Remember Julia Child? Remember Graham Kerr? If you do, you may be old; if you don’t know them, let’s just say I came up with this one myself.  Just kidding.  It’s a French classic, and you’ll love the beefy goodness.  I hope you like it.
2 pounds beef stew meat (I used Happy Family Ranch)
1 carrot sliced in 1/4 inch pieces
1 white onion, diced
1 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
