Combine the sauteed veggies and beef in one large skillet pan.
Add tomato sauce, olives, capers, raisins, and remaining seasonings.
Stir well to mix. Cook covered 40 minutes on low heat.

I like this dish with Basmati or long grained white rice.
And don't leave out the raisins, as they really add to the dish...
