Return meat to pot. Stir in beef broth, wine, tomato paste, garlic and herbs. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Add carrots, turnips and onions. Simmer covered 45 minutes or until carrots are almost tender. Stir in mushrooms and green beans. Cover and simmer 45 minutes more until vegetables and meat are tender, stirring occasionally.
