How to Make It

Step 1

Coat the beef with the flour.

Step 2

Heat the oil in an 8-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the beef in 2 batches and cook until it's well browned, stirring often. Remove the beef from the saucepot. Pour off any fat.

Step 3

Stir the tomato juice, broth, onion and black pepper in the saucepot and heat to a boil. Return the beef to the saucepot. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 1 hour.

Step 4

Stir in the carrots and potatoes. Cover and cook for 1 hour or until the beef is fork-tender and the vegetables are tender.
