This is a terrific family dinner. Tender pieces of steak are sauteed with juicy peppers in a great sauce. Serve with white rice or buttered mashed potatoes, and Italian bread for dipping. This is a really easy dinner. I hope your family will enjoy this as much as mine does.

  • Place the steak strips into the skillet with the grated onion, and cook and stir for about 10 minutes, until the steak is evenly browned and no longer pink inside. Return the cooked peppers to the skillet, and stir in tomatoes, water, and sugar. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Simmer over low heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until the steak is tender and the sauce has thickened.

This recipe was pretty good, but I did make 2 small changes to it. First, I added fresh minced garlic to the meat and onion mixture before putting the peppers back into the skillet. I also added a tablespoon of flour so that once I added the tomatoes and the water, it would make a thicker "gravy". This was pretty easy and my husband loved it! Thanks. Read More

I made the recipe as it's posted and just felt like it was a bit too sweet and tomato-y for my taste. I'd consider making it again but I'd have to make so many changes it'd probably just be a new recipe. Read More

I've been looking for this recipe for quite a while. My mother used to make this and I loved it. I didn't have round steak so i used the elk steak I had and it was great. Didn't add water at all just used the juice in the diced tomatoes I added. Towards the end I added a tablespoon or so of flour to thicken the sauce and also added garlic because I love garlic.

I loved this meal! I added diced tomatoes and made my own gravy for thickness. If you do not know how to make gravy here is what I did: after browning the meat (I did not cook the onions with the meat), I removed everything from the skillet. Then you put oil, onions, and flour in the pan..... keep stirring until the mixture browns. Then pour the natural juices from the steak into the pot while stirring vigorously! Add add extra water to the mixture if you desire thinner gravy or simply more gravy. Then you add your veggies and meat and finish cooking as the directions stated! It was very good Read More

I made this recipe last night and I liked but too sweet for my hubby. Instead I put shrimp in it and some cajun seasoning and came out better.:-) Read More

Made this on a week day night. It was wonderful. Used green peppers, but red and yellow ones would add more color. Served over broad noodles. Pineapple chunks served as a dessert. Read More

I normally don't like steak because the only ones I've eaten were tough. These were very tender and tasty! Loved it and husband did as well! Thanks so much for sharing. Read More
