It's so easy to make and is just one of those feel good recipes. Sticks to the ribs and warms you up kind of meal. I have a wonderful electric 8 quart dutch oven that I make this in but you can use any kind.
In large dutch oven place 1/3 cup vegetable oil. get oil hot. Place the flour and all spices into gallon baggie and shake. Then place meat into baggie and shake until coated well. Once oil is nice and hot put garlic into pan and let cook about 1 minute. Then place all beef into dutch oven. Let that cook about 7-10 minutes. You want to get the flour on the beef nice and brown. So stir the beef a couple of times. Then pour in broth and water, sliced onions and peppers. Cover and let boil for 1 hour stirring occasionaly. Then turn down to simmer and let simmer for 1 1/2 hours. when only a half hour left of cooking, slice and toss in the fresh mushrooms. Serve with white rice, potatoes, or even penne pasta!
