Increase the heat to high and cook the beef until browned. Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion, garlic, carrot and mushrooms. Cook until onion is soft and translucent.  Remove from pan and set aside.

Add olive oil to pan and add flour. Cook until a dark golden brown. Remove pan from heat and gradually add the stock and wine, stirring until well combined. Return to heat and stir until sauce boils and thickens.
