  Seasoning mix 1 Teaspoon
  Sweet paprika 2 Teaspoon
  Onion powder 2 Teaspoon
  Dried sweet basil 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dry mustard 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme leaves 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  White pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Flank steak 1 Pound, all visible fat removed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  Chopped onions 3 Cup (48 tbs) (In All)
  Chopped green bell peppers 2 Cup (32 tbs) (In All)
  Sliced okra 4 Cup (64 tbs) (In All)
  Chopped celery 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Apple juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Defatted beef stock 4 Cup (64 tbs) (In All)
  All-purpose flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), browned
  Minced fresh garlic 1 Teaspoon
  Cooked long grain white rice 4 1⁄2 Cup (72 tbs)

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.
Sprinkle all surfaces of the diced flank steak evenly with 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mix and set aside.
Preheat a heavy 5-quart pot, preferably nonstick, over high heat to 350°, about 4 minutes.
Add 2 cups of the onions, 1 cup of the bell peppers, 2 cups of the okra, and all of the celery.
Cook, scraping the bottom of the pot occasionally to clear it of brown bits, until the vegetables start to stick, about 8 minutes.
Add the apple juice and remaining seasoning mix.
Stir and cook, checking the bottom of the pot occasionally for sticking, until all the liquid evaporates, about 8 minutes.
Add 1 cup of the stock and the browned flour, and mix until the flour is completely absorbed, the browned flour is no longer visible, and a loose paste forms, about 2 minutes.
Add the seasoned beef, stir, and cook, scraping the bottom occasionally as sticking occurs, for 2 minutes.
Add the remaining onions, bell peppers, okra, and the garlic.
Stir and continue to cook and scrape the bottom for 3 minutes.
Add the remaining 3 cups of stock, stir until well blended, and cook 10 minutes.
Serve over the rice.
