    Combine the flour and pepper in a bowl, add the beef and coat well. Heat 3 teaspoons of the oil in a large pot. Add the beef; do not overcrowd. Cook, turning the pieces until beef is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes per batch; add more oil as needed between batches.

    Remove the beef from the pot and add the Goody Cider vinegar. Cook over medium-high heat, scraping the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen any browned bits. Add the beef, beef broth and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a slow simmer.
