Steak & Veggies

This recipe was adapted from another recipe I have. We added some bell peppers to the mix and the result was great!

2 lbs steak (any cut is fine)
2 large onions, sliced
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 bell peppers, cut in slices
1 can diced tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil or butter

Cut your meat up into serving size pieces. Put oil or butter into a skillet and seer both sides of the meat turning once. Put the onions on top then the salt and pepper. Pour the tomatoes over the top and simmer, covered, on low until the meat is tender. This can take up to an hour depending on the steak.

During the last 15 minutes of cooking, place the bell pepper slices on top. Don't let the peppers cook too much, just until tender.

Remove and serve with Herb Roasted potatoes.

Since the meat is cooked for a longer amount of time you can use cheaper cuts of meat. Try to find it on sale and don't be afraid to purchase meats that are nearing their "sell by" date. If it's close to the date, either cook it in the next few days or freeze it for later use.

This can also be cooked in a crock-pot!
