While shopping at Sun Harvest today, I picked up a really nice steak. Here's a quick, simple recipe for a great steak dinner:
Portabella and Pepper Steak:
- 1 medium sized sirloin steak.
- 2 small red bell peppers, seeded, cut in 1/2" strips
- 2 portabella mushroom caps, cut in 1/2" strips
- black pepper (to taste)
- crushed red pepper (to taste)
- Seasoned salt (to taste)
- Butter (7 tbsp)
- olive oil (2-3 tbsp)
Take the tip of a sharp knife and pierce the steak every 1/4" or so. Sprinkle with black pepper, crushed red pepper, and a pinch of seasoned salt. Flip and do the same to the other side.
Put about 5 pats of butter (~1 tbsp ea.) on the steak and put it under the broiler for 8-10 min, flipping it halfway through. (The reason for piercing the steak is to let the butter and spices soak in. Don't omit that step. )
While that is broiling, put 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp olive oil in (hot) saucepan, and sauté the mushrooms and bell peppers on high heat. Once the peppers and mushrooms have softened a bit, add black pepper, crushed red pepper and a dash of seasoned salt. Cover and cook until you just begin to see the peppers blacken at the edges.
The steak and the veggies should be done just about the same time. Take out the steak, cut into 1/2" strips, and place the peppers and mushrooms over the top.
Real simple. Reaallyy good.
