Old Fashioned Swiss Steak

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
2 teaspoons salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt - I use garlic powder instead
2 pounds boneless round steak, cut into serving size pieces
3 tablespoons cooking oil - I use olive oil
1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups chopped green pepper
1 cups chopped celery
1 cups chopped onion
2 cans (14 1/2 oz. each) diced tomatoes, undrained - I used Rotel /w green chilis
1 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup cold water

In a large plastic bag, combine ½ C. flour, 1 tsp. salt, ½ tsp. pepper and garlic salt (powder). Add beef and toss to coat. Remove meat from bag and pound with a mallet to tenderize. Heat oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven and brown the meat. Add garlic, green pepper, celery and onion; cook and stir for 10 to 15 minutes. Add tomatoes, broth, soy sauce and remaining salt and pepper. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours. Remove from the oven and return to stovetop. In a small bowl, combine water and remaining flour and stir into juices. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Yield 6 to 8 servings.

From my Grandma so this is close to 100 yrs. old.
The Rotel is my addition.
