1-1/2 pounds boneless beef bottom round, cut into 1-inch pieces
Ground black pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 (10-1/2 ounces) can condensed French onion soup

1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
3 cups mushrooms, cut in half
3 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
