 907 g stewing beef
 1/4 tsp salt
 1/4 tsp pepper
 1/4 tsp allspice
 1/4 tsp rosemary

Cut stewing beef into 1" cubes.


Combine the flour and all the seasonings and sprinkle over the meat.


Heat the canola oil in a sauce pan or a small roaster, add the meat and brown for approximately 15 minutes.


Add the beef stock and canned tomatoes and let simmer for 1 hour. Add the vegetables and simmer an additional 30 minutes. Check for tenderness.
