|1 1/2||lb||Top round or sirloin steak,|
|1||Clove garlic, minced|
|1||c||Beef broth (bouillon),|

|1||c||Green bell pepper, cored,|
|Seeded, and cut into|
|1||c||Celery, thinly sliced|
|1/4||c||Onions, thinly sliced|

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 of Coca-Cola. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Do not overcooked; the vegetables should be tender-crisp. Peel the tomatoes, cut into wedges, gently stir into meat.
Blend cornstarch with the 1/4 cup of Coca-Cola and the soy sauce. Stir mixture into the meat and cook until sauce is thickens, about 1 minute, stirring lightly with a fork. Serve over hot rice. Makes 6 (3/4 cup) servings. Recipe: "International Cooking with Coca-Cola", a give-away pamphlet from The Coca-Cola Company, 1981
