Peppered Steak

Peppered steak is an old standby meal.  When you have soccer or any activity after school and need to come home to a home cooked meal, just thrown this is the oven or a crock pot before you leave.  Dinner is ready when you get home!





Sprinkle steak with salt, pepper and garlic powder on both sides, press into the meat.  Dredge meat in the flour on both side and shake off excess flour.  Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over high heat until hot, brown each side of the steak.  Remove the steal and set aside.  Add onions and sauté until they begin to soften.  Add in the 3 cups of beef stock and deglaze the pan.  Return the steak to the pan along with the can of chopped tomatoes and bell peppers on top of the steak.  Cover with lid and place in a pre-heated 325 degreed oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.


This steak is so tender, it just melts in your mouth!

  

The Recipe:


Peppered Steak

1-½ pounds of sirloin steak, trimmed and fat removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3-cup flour
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ of large onion, sliced thin
3 bell peppers, red, yellow and green, seeded and sliced
1 can of chopped tomatoes
3 cups of beef stock, low sodium
1 tablespoon corn starch
1/3 cup of water


Sprinkle steak with salt, pepper and garlic powder on both sides, press into the meat.  Dredge meat in the flour on both side and shake off excess flour.  Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over high heat until hot, brown each side of the steak.  Remove the steal and set aside.  Add onions and sauté until they begin to soften.  Add in the 3 cups of beef stock and deglaze the pan.  Return the steak to the pan along with the can of chopped tomatoes and bell peppers on top of the steak.  Cover with lid and place in a pre-heated 325 degreed oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  Remove steak from the pan and make a slurry of 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to 1/3 cup of water and add to the sauce to thicken.  Serve sauce over the steak and serve by itself with a green salad or over rice or noodles.

This can also be cooked in a crock pot on low for 4 hours.

Happy Eating!

You had me at soccer. Then at STEAK, then at peppers! What a delicious alternative to fast food after a game, or music lesson, as is our life these days. Thank you!
