  1. Cut the round steak into four serving-size pieces.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, seasoned salt, and pepper.
  3. Sprinkle each piece of beef on both sides with some of the flour mixture. Pound the pieces with a meat mallet or rolling pin to thin slightly and tenderize.
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the meat well on both sides. Pour off excess drippings.
  5. To the skillet with the beef, add the tomatoes, water or beef stock, garlic, chopped onion, and celery. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until quite tender.
  6. Add the bell pepper to the skillet. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes longer.
  7. Serve with mashed potatoes and corn.
