3. Place the oil in a heated rondeau, as needed. Once the oil begins to smoke, add the beef. Sear on all sides. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the beef and pour off any excess oil. Add the carrots, celery, onions and garlic to the rondeau. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sauté until the onions are translucent.
