1. In a large stock pot over medium/high heat, heat the oil and add the beef pieces. Sprinkle the flour over the beef. Brown the meat on all sides.

3. Bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for 1-1/2 hours or until beef is tender, stirring occasionally.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
A good friend of ours is Ukrainian, and he invited us to his wedding a few years back, both to celebrate with him, and to experience Ukrainian food and traditions. Brian was not able to go, but I went for the both of us. There were tons of food at the reception, and it just kept coming to our tables. When we started to leave, the catering people and the relatives invited all the guests into the kitchen, and started loading us up to take food home. I felt like I was robbing the wedding party, but they all insisted. I came home with piles of food, and learned later than it was a tradition to share the wedding food with the family and friends. I was excited to share the "Russian/Ukrainian" food with Brian when I got home. After the first bite of the meat dish, Brian was absolutely delighted that this was just like the one that his mother used to make when he was a child. We were never able to track down the original recipe, but this one is close.
