Trim and cut the beef into 3-cm (1 -in) cubes.
Put the meat and all the other ingredients except the sesame oil and black pepper into a saucepan and add just enough water to cover the meat.
Cover the pan and bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 1 1/2- hours.
When cooking is finished, there should be almost no gravy left.
Add the sesame oil and black pepper and serve.
