This beef and pepper dish is a nice alternative to a traditional beef hot pot.
Serve it with Cheddar-Herb Biscuits.
In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Cook the beef for 3
to 4 minutes, or until browned. With a slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a
plate and set aside. Add the onions and garlic to the skillet and cook for 3
to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the peppers, celery, tomato paste,
stock, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and
simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and the sauce is
thickened. Stir in the beef and cook until heated through.
To serve, ladle into shallow bowls and sprinkle with parsley.
