Trim fat from meat and cut into cubes. Brown the meat in a large frying pan with 2 tblsp of olive oil until just brown on the outsides, not cooked completely through. Take the meat out of the pan, add gravy mix, water, red wine, brown sugar, worchestershire sauce and ginger. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp of black pepper. Preheat oven to 350. In a medium size casserole dish put in the meat, add the mushrooms sliced (if using fresh)or the canned ones, and the sliced onion (not chopped) and the bay leaf. Add the sauce on top and stir to mix. Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is tender. If you like a slightly thicker sauce for the meat, thicken it with a bit of cornstarch dissolved in cold water. Serve over noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.
