Cook the beef in stew or soup until it falls apart. String the beef. Slice onion and green pepper. Crush garlic and fry in hot oil with onion. Add green pepper and fry a little more. Add remaining ingredients, cover and cook over low heat for 15 or 20 minutes stirring occasionally to avoid sticking. The red pepper may be added now or used to decorate. Serve with rice or salad.
