This came together because I had peppers leftover from the 10-minute chili we made the other day and a steak in the freezer. That’s it, really. I threw some spices in to make it like pepper steak. The key to this, I think, is marinating the meat ahead of time IF you are using a poorer cut of meat. Flank steak? Marinate 2 hours. London broil? Marinate 24 hours. Strip or filet? You’re probably fine. Also: Can I come live in your mansion?
To marinate your meat, do the following: For every 2 lbs of meat, put it in a ziploc bag with the following: 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp. cooking wine, pinch of salt and pepper.
