Saute onion and pepper in 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter until onion is translucent. Add stew meat, cut into 3/4 inch cubes and brown on all sides.

When it's cool, combine 1/2 cup of water with the cornstarch and mix well. Add the cornstarch mixture to the cooled juice. Stir and pour back into beef, return to a simmer.

Personal Notes:
The soy sauce is why I categorized this as "oriental." It could just as easily be made with beef stock or a combination of beef stock and Worcestershire sauce. Mother's recipe called for a can of mushrooms, but I don't think you could get fresh mushrooms as easily in the mid 70s as you can today. Fresh is always better.
