  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound beef sirloin steak, cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup picante sauce
  • 1 3/4 cups beef broth


  1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the beef cubes, and cook until well-browned. Drain excess fat.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in the onion, pepper and cumin. Stir occasionally, and cook until the vegetables are tender. Add flour and stir. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Heat the oil in a 4-quart nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until it’s well browned, stirring often. Pour off any fat.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium. Stir the onion, pepper and cumin in the saucepan and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add the flour and cook and stir for 1 minute.
  5. Add the picante sauce and beef broth. Heat the mixture to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat to low. Cook until the beef is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
