4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 small onion, finely diced, (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup finely diced carrot
1/2 cup finely diced celery
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
2 cloves garlic, finely minced

4 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 (10 1/2 oz) cans beef broth, reserve 1/4 cup
2 tablespoons flour

For sauce, heat 2 tbl. oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add beef and brown well. Remove from pan, drain well and set aside.

In same pan, add remaining oil and saute onions until tender, about 5 minutes. Add carrots, celery, pepper flakes, parsley, garlic, herbs and mushrooms and saute 2 more minutes.
