Spray 4 to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Heat half of the oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the meat. Cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to brown all sides. Remove to slow cooker. Repeat with remaining oil and meat. Remove to slow cooker. Stir flour, salt and pepper into meat. Add broth to skillet.

Reduce heat; cover and simmer 1 3/4 to 2 hours or until meat is fork tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
