Mix the flour, salt and pepper together into a paper or plastic bag. Place the beef cubes into the bag and shake to coat each piece. Shake off the excess. Heat the cooking oil over a high heat in a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot with a cover. When the oil is very hot, add the beef about 5 or 6 pieces at a time. Brown on all sides and remove. When the last batch of meat is a rich dark color, return all the beef to the pot and add the boiling water.
