      “This recipe is a standby we've fed to many a branding crew.  It’s  
 hearty and filling - important requirements when you're feeding a bunch of 
 cowboys!” - Betty Sitzman    In a Dutch oven,  brown beef in oil on both 
 sides.  Add onion and celery when meat is almost  browned.  Add broth; 
 cover and simmer 3-4 hours or until meat is tender.   Remove meat; cool 
 and shred.  Drain vegetables, reserving 1 1/2 cups broth. Skim off any  
 fat.  Return the meat, vegetables and broth to Dutch oven; add the  
 remaining ingredients. Simmer until heated through.  This keeps well in a  
 slow cooker on low heat.  Remove bay leaf before serving. From:
