Does anyone have a recipe for cooking frozen green peppers with tomatoes on top of the stove? My great aunt used to cook them this way.
By Carolyn from Troy, OH
1 good-quality boneless beef steak, about 12 ounces
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, cut into 1-by-1/4-inch strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-by-1/4-inch strips
1 small hot chili pepper (such as jalapeño or serrano), halved, stemmed, seeded, deveined, and minced (optional)
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or chipotle chile flakes (optional)
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1.With a sharp knife, trim all fat and gristle from the edges of the steak. Cut the steak into strips about 1 inch long and 1/4 inch thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
2.Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Scatter in the steak strips and cook, stirring occasionally, until they lose their red color and are browned along the edges, about 5 minutes.
3.Add the onion, bell pepper, and chili pepper, if using, and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables start to soften, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle in the red pepper flakes, if desired, and continue cooking until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
4.Stir in the tomatoes, sugar, oregano, and basil, and stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to dissolve the pan deposits. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer until the sauce has thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings, if necessary, with a little more salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
To soak up all the delicious juices, serve the steak over steamed rice or a delicious rice pilaf.good luck.
