Add beef and brown with onion and bacon for 5 minutes. Add thyme, salt and pepper; sauté for 2 more minutes.

Reserve 1/4-cup broth and set aside. Add remaining broth, red wine and bay leaves to pot and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to Low, cover and simmer for 1 1/4 hours.

Meanwhile, cut carrots and celery into 1-inch pieces. Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Add carrots, celery and potatoes to stew. Return to a boil; simmer 20 to 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaves.

Combine cornstarch with reserved 1/4-cup beef broth. Stir into stew.

Chop parsley; blend with baking mix. Stir milk into baking mix until just moistened for dumplings. Raise heat to Medium-Low. Drop dumplings by spoonfuls onto boiling stew. Simmer 10 minutes, uncovered. Cover and simmer 10 more minutes. Serve while hot.
