If you're like me, you struggle with dinner. Not eating it, obviously, but coming up with stuff to make for it. I love cooking, but I hate cooking dinner because I just can't find enough time to truly enjoy the process. That's not a complaint, rather, it's just reality. Especially right now. So I'm super grateful for Lesley for the following recipe, which I've already added to my rotation this week.
Hi everyone! I’m Lesley and I blog at Greater Fitness. I'm so excited to share one of my new favorite recipes with all of you! I found a recipe on Pinterest last month for Pepper, Steak, and Onions that I tweaked a bit before making. It's the perfect "comfort food" that doesn't include any creams, soups, or butter. I especially liked this meal because it was a great way for me to get some veggies in my diet—something I really struggle with. It also really tastes like it was cooked in a Crock-Pot, but it's a one-pot stove top dish.
You will need:
• 1-1/2 pounds sirloin steak, cut into 1/2" strips
• 2 garlic cloves, crushed
• 2 tbsp. olive oil
• 1 cup white onions, sliced
• 2 sweet bell peppers, cut in strips
• 2 large tomatoes, diced
• 1 cup beef broth
• 1/4 cup water
• 2 tbsp. flour
• 2 tbsp. soy sauce
• 3 cups hot cooked rice (optional)
Cover and simmer over low/medium heat for 45 minutes.
