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)
White pepper
Red Pepper Flakes
Provolone Cheese
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.


  1. Very good tip--I think I will try it with shrimp instead of steak.

  2. delicious and healthy which is totally what I've been trying to do lately...

    I sauteed my chicken breasts today in a bunch of spices and organic portabella mushroom soup....yum !

    did you see alicia silverstone on oprah or watch the movie, food, inc ?????

    oh...both will change your life :)

  3. Yum! Now I'm hungry again! You know what I like to do with Bell Peppers, Onion and garlic? I like to slice them really thin, add really thin sliced tomatoes and add Italian dressing and serve them up on top of a hotdog as a relish, or next to a juicy steak or just by themselves. I can eat them like popcorn. It's a recipe from Woolgrowers. I know you know Woolgrowers right?

  4. Yum. We're off to Costco tomorrow, so I'll look for the steak strips - my husband would love this dish!

    I do chicken fajiitas with bell pepper and onions:

    3 chicken breasts
    1 red bell
    1 green bell
    1 onion
    1/4 C canola oil
    1/4 C low-salt soy sauce
    1/4 C fresh lime juice

    Marinate these ingredients for a few hours or overnight - grill chicken (then thinly slice) and cook the rest of the ingredients down on the stove - adding fresh tomatoes at the end - add whatever toppings you like, but it's fine with these ingredients and tortillas!

  5. That looks and sounds delicious.. yum!

  6. Nancy~ Thanks for the recipe

    Alicia ~ I love Woolgrowers. We used to eat there all the time.

  7. Mmmm, yum! I always use wholewheat pasta and my son insists he can tell the difference. I can't.
