Pepper Steak & Rice

Warning: You’ll be drooling from the amazing smell. Wear a bib if necessary when cooking.

This is a quick and easy recipe that is a perfect last minute meal idea. I had a majority of the ingredients in my fridge and all I did was pick up a pound of flank steak at Von’s when I was making my Starbucks run.

Ingredients:
1 Bell Pepper (Fresh or Frozen)
1/2 A Small Onion
1 Garlic Clove Finely Chopped
1/2-1 Pound of flank Steak
Salt & Pepper

Directions:
Cut your flank steak in strips. Generously salt & pepper.  Cut the bell pepper in strips. If you love peppers, feel free to add more than one bell pepper. Chop up half a onion and one clove of garlic.

In one pan, add oil, onion, garlic and bell pepper and cook over medium heat. In a second pan, add the oil and cook steak strips.  Cook one side until brown and then stir. I like my steak medium rare so I don’t cook them longer than another minute and a half.

Combine the steak in the pan of peppers and onions. Stir and add any other sauce you may want to use (i.e. Soy Sauce, Mr. Yoshida, etc.). I just added a little Thai paste to give it a little more kick. Stir and plate with rice.
