      • 2 lbs round steaks (London broil, chuck, or round roasts may also be used)
      • 2 teaspoons salt
      • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, Ground
      • 1 teaspoon red pepper, Ground
      • 1 teaspoon white pepper, Ground
      • all-purpose flour (dredging)
      • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
      • 3 medium onions, chopped
      • 2 bell peppers, chopped
      • 1 celery rib, chopped
      • 1 cup beef stock or water

      • Season the meat with one half of the salt and peppers.
      • Dust with flour on all sides.
      • Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or other large heavy pot over medium-high heat, add the meat, and brown well on all sides.
      • Remove the meat and pour off all but 1 teaspoon of the oil.
      • Add half the onions, bell peppers, celery, and the other half of the seasonings, and the stock or water.
      • Stir well and reduce the heat to the lowest possible point.
      • Return the meat to the pot and cover with the remaining vegetables.
      • Cover and let cook until the meat is very tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
      • Serve the meat in slices, with rice alongside and the gravy over all.
      • When you try this recipe with other kinds of meat, be sure to adjust the cooking times accordingly–let tenderness be your guide.
      • For extra flavorful meat, try larding with slivers of garlic before smothering.
