Trim excess fat from meat and cut into even 1 inch chunks using a sharp knife. Place dressing and beef in large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate.
Cook bacon in large pot on medium 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pot using slotted spoon. Drain excess bacon fat carefully into a tin can, rather than pouring down sink. Place can in fridge until fat has solidified before discarding.
Add onion and mushrooms to pot; cook on medium-high 10 minutes or until softened. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Add beef, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes with their liquid, broth and bacon to pot. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 1 hour 15 minutes. Uncover; continue to simmer 15 minutes or until meat is tender and sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally.
