Happy Monday everyone!

Where have I been the past two weeks? This lady got a full time job two weeks ago so I have been trying to learn a completely new job and get used to being a working mom again. My days aren’t quite as flexible now than when I was staying home with the kids. So that’s been an adjustment!

But this isn’t to say I haven’t been prepping and working behind the scenes for this project to get some posts lined up! So, I want to jump into today’s post: Beef with Peppers. This is a super quick and easy recipe to pull off. The ingredients are simple, and it’ll take ~30 minutes total to prep the ingredients, and then cook it all. Let’s get into it!

Ingredients:

  • Stewing beef or sirloin steak cut into strips (the sirloin is obviously going to add more flavour and will likely be more tender, but stewing beef works and tastes delicious!
  • One Yellow onion
  • Three to four peppers
  • 5-6 tomatoes (skin removed) OR can of diced or stewed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1-2 Tbs minced garlic
  • Salt and ground peppercorns

First, if you want a side with this dish, rice and quinoa pair well with it. Or cauliflower rice (which is what I used because of keto). But, you don’t need to include another side as this is filling on it’s own as well! If you’re going to include the side dish, you can get that started now.

Next, place a frying pan on your stove (or use an electric frying pan) and turn on to medium – medium high heat. Pour one to two tablespoons of olive oil in the pan. Next, take your stewing beef or sirloin strips and place them in the pan. Begin to let them fry in the oil, stirring them around occasionally to help cook them evenly. Cut your onion into half-slices and add to the cooking beef.

Cut your peppers into strips. Once your onion has begun to turn translucent, and the meat is browning, add the peppers and sauté them.

Finally, add 5-6 tomatoes (no skin) (or a can of diced or stewed tomatoes) to the mixture as well as 1 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce, 1-2 Tbs of minced garlic, salt, and ground peppercorns. Put the lid on the pan and let everything simmer for a few minutes.

Your rice should be complete by the time this fry has finished cooking so you can serve up!

The sauce that results from the culmination of the vegetables, meat and Worcestershire Sauce tastes very nice on rice.

Bon Appetit!

  1. Congrats on the new job, Marcie! I know that’s a challenge.

    In the picture towards the top with the beef and onions in the skillet, is that a wooden spoon? I’ve never seen one like that. It looks like a guitar!

    1. Thanks Jason! It has been a challenge for sure! Juggling two kids with a new job and my blog has been tough to juggle!

      And yes, it’s a wooden spoon in the shape of a guitar! I thought it was pretty nifty so it was well worth the extra cost for the novelty. 😊
