    Heat vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add flour, salt and pepper to a baggie; add stew meat and shake to coat meat. Fry in oil until browned. Add water, bouillon cubes, Cajun seasoning and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover, simmer for about 15 minutes. Add sweet potato, green pepper, celery and onion and simmer for another 30-40 minutes or until meat is done and vegetables are tender. You can reduce the amount of Cajun seasoning, if it's too spicy.
