Cut steak into small pieces and fry in butter on both sides. Take the meat out and make a roux in the same skillet. Stir the roux until golden brown. Add meat, water, tomatoes, red pepper and salt. Let cook for about 1 hour. Add onions and potatoes. Cook for another 1/2 hour.
You may add peas and carrots if you like.
