  Categories: Chinese, Beef, Coca-cola
       Yield: 6 servings
  
   1 1/2 lb Top Round Steak
       2 tb Vegetable Oil
       1    Clove Garlic, Minced
       1 ts Salt
       1 c  Beef Broth
       1 c  Julienned Bell Pepper
       1 c  Thinly Sliced Celery
     1/4 c  Thinly Sliced Onion
     1/2 c  Coca-Cola
       2 md Ripe Tomatoes
   2 1/2 tb Cornstarch
     1/4 c  Coca-Cola
       1 tb Soy Sauce
            Hot Cooked Rice
  
   Trim all fat from the meat and cut into pencil thin
   strips.  In a deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat oil,
   garlic and salt.  Add the meat and brown over high
   heat, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with a
   fork.  Add the beef broth.  Cover and simmer for 15 to
   20 minutes, or until the meat is fork-tender.  Stir in
   the green pepper strips, celery, onions and 1/2 cup
   Coca-Cola.  Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.  Do not
   overcook; the vegetables should be crisp-tender.  Peel
   the tomatoes; cut into wedges and gently stir into
   meat mixture.  Blend cornstarch with 1/4 cup of
   Coca-Cola and the soy sauce.  Stir into the meat
   mixture until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute,
   stirring lightly with a fork.  Serve over hot rice.
