2 tbsp. rice flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups peeled sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes (2 medium)

3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp. dried parsley
pinch ground allspice
pinch ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper, to taste

Stir together the rice flour, salt and pepper. Place in a large ziplock bag. Add the beef cubes, close the bag, and shake to coat. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add the beef and brown on all sides.
