Preheat oven to 180°C. Take meat out of the refrigerator and out of the pack to come to room temperature before cooking.
Oil the beef medallions before putting it into a frying pan. Sear beef over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Set aside. In the same frying pan, fry capsicums and onion for 5 minutes.
Place beef, capsicums and onions into a 12-cup capacity casserole dish. Add remaining ingredients to the casserole dish with 175 ml water. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Cover with lid, bake in the oven for 1 hour. Remove lid and bake for another 30 minutes.
