Season meat with salt and pepper. In a large saute pan over medium heat add the cubed meat and cook until browned. Add to crock pot with the chopped bell pepper, onion, tomato, garlic, cumin, black pepper and 1-ounce water and stir to combine. Add enough beef broth to barely cover meat. Use water if more liquid is needed. Cook on Low until the beef is tender, 6 to 8 hours. Half way through cooking add the roux. Season with salt, to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter. Carne guisada is a hearty Mexican-style beef stew. It is excellent with tortillas or cornbread, and is also great as a burrito filling.
