Let's Make It
Pat meat dry with paper towel. Coat evenly with 2 Tbsp. flour.
Heat Dutch oven or large deep skillet on medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp. dressing and meat; cook meat 2 to 3 min. on each side or until browned on both sides. Remove meat from pan; set aside. Add remaining dressing, mushrooms, carrots, peppers and onions to pan; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until vegetables are lightly browned, stirring frequently to scrape up browned bits from bottom of pan. Add garlic; cook 1 min. or until fragrant, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes with reserved liquid and Italian seasoning; stir. Return meat to pan; bring to boil. Cover; simmer on low heat 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat is tender, turning meat occasionally.
Transfer meat to cutting board; cover to keep warm. Spoon vegetables onto serving platter, reserving meat juices in pan. Mix remaining flour and water; gradually whisk into juices in pan. Cook and stir on medium heat 3 to 5 min. or until thickened. Slice meat across the grain; place on platter with vegetables. Serve with gravy.
Serve with hot cooked pasta.
Cool, then refrigerate any leftover meat. Serve in sandwiches made with sliced Italian bread the next day.
