Mmm Mmm Good
This is what I made for dinner last night and it really was delicious.
It's so easy to make.
I call it Spicy Steak and Peppers Pita.
It looks like a fajita and it basically has the same ingredients but it has a different taste to it.
These are the ingredients I used for this dish.
2 green bell peppers diced
2 red bell peppers diced
1 large red onion diced
2 cloves garlic diced extra small
Steak (I cheated. I used seasoned steak strips from Costco that are fully cooked)
Red Pepper Flakes
Whole Wheat Pita Bread
Saute' the peppers and onions in 1-2 Tbsp. of olive oil on medium high heat until soft.
Sprinkle with white pepper and red pepper flakes
I like mine spicy so I don't measure I just sprinkle over the whole dish.
add garlic and steak strips and saute another 5-6 minutes
stirring occasionally so that it doesn't stick.
Lay whole wheat pita on a plate and add provolone cheese to it.
Microwave for about 15 seconds to melt the cheese and warm the bread.
Add steak and peppers and fold like a taco.
Eat and enjoy.
Mmm Mmm Good.
The thing about bell peppers, onions and garlic is that these three ingredients can create a variety of tasty dishes that are completely different from one another and it's very healthy too.
The other night I made my own version of kung pao chicken using the above as my main ingredients. I added a few more items such as water chestnuts, green onions, red pepper flakes, chili peppers, kung pao sauce from Panda Express, chicken. I then put this over steamed brown rice and presto, another healthy tasty dish.
I always use those three ingredients when I make spaghetti too and I always use whole wheat spaghetti.
You can't tell the difference and it's much better for you.
What kind of dish can you make with bell peppers, onions and garlic?
I'd love some new recipes.
