Trim the round steak, discarding fat and sinew. Cut the steak in half, then start cutting it into thin strips about 1/2 inch thick. Place in a plastic zip bag or freezer bag. Add the lime juice, a sprinkling of sea salt and the chopped cilantro. Seal the bag, getting as much air as possible out of the bag. Turn the bag over a few times to coat the steak with herbs and juice. Place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Heat olive oil in the bottom of a large stew pot. Add the onion, garlic and celery and cook, stirring often until the onion is tender. Remove the steak strips from the bag, draining off the juice and add to the pot. Cook on medium-high to brown the meat, then reduce heat to medium.
Add V-8 juice, tomatoes and beans. Cook on medium until bubbly. Add the sugar, spices and chocolate and reduce heat, or place in a crock pot on medium heat. Allow to simmer for at least one hour, or you may allow it to cook up to eight hours in the crock pot.
