2. In a large pot heat oil over medium heat. Add beef in small chuncks to pot and season with salt add pepper. Stir occasionally and cook beef until it is lightly browned for about 7 minutes. It is ok if the beef remains a little pink in spots, just be sure beef is not crisp. Transfer beef to medium sized bowl while trying to leave drippings in pan.
