For seasoning mix
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Onion powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sweet paprika 1 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried chervil 1 Teaspoon
  Dry mustard 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  White pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Flank steak 1 Pound, all visible fat removed, and the beef scalloped
  Chopped onions 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Chopped green bell peppers 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Chopped celery 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Defatted chicken stock 5 Cup (80 tbs) (In All)
  All-purpose flour 6 Tablespoon, browned
  Cooked long grain white rice 3 Cup (48 tbs)

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.
Preheat a heavy 5-quart pot, preferably nonstick, over high heat to 350°, about 4 minutes.
While the pot is heating, sprinkle all surfaces of the steak with 2 tablespoons of the seasoning mix and rub it in well.
Place the seasoned steak in the pot and brown it on all sides, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Remove the steak from the pot and set it aside.
Add the onions, bell peppers, celery, and remaining seasoning mix to the pot, stir, and cook 2 minutes.
Stir in 1 cup of the stock, scrape the bottom of the pot to clear it of all brown bits, and cook until the vegetables start to brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Add the browned flour and mix it in until all the flour is absorbed, the brown flour is no longer visible, and a paste forms.
Add 3 cups of stock, and return the steak and all its juices to the pot.
Stir well, and bring to a boil.
Turn the heat down to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick, about 30 minutes.
Add the remaining cup of stock and continue to cook, stirring occasionally to keep the mixture from sticking on the bottom, until the steak is tender, about 30 minutes.
