    2) Push the beef to one side, add the remaining tablespoon of oil the other side and add in the onions, peppers and garlic and saute for a few minutes or until they soften and cook down a bit then unite the veggies with the beef and cook together for a couple more minutes.

    3) Add all the remaining ingredients along with about 1/2 cup of water, bring to a boil then reduce the heat to medium low, cover and allow to simmer for about a half an hour.
