1NOTE: I cooked my steak and onions and then bell peppers in batches as not to overload my soup pot. You want to slightly brown your peppers while cooking them quickly so that they hold their texture, if you overload the pot, they will get mushy before they get slightly caramelized. I season my peppers each time I place a batch in the soup pot with granulated garlic and Mrs. Dash.
2Slice beef and onions into strips then into bite size pcs. Place in a large soup pot with a little olive oil on high heat and begin to brown stirring often. Season with granulated garlic, Mrs. Dash and black pepper. Once they are mostly brown add 1 tsp of reduced sodium teriyaki sauce and 1/2-1 tsp cumin, mix and continue to cook for a few minutes more, remove from pot and set aside.
3While meat is cooking slice bell peppers and cut into same size as you did steak and onion. Once you have removed steak from pot add a little more olive oil, a couple handfuls of peppers. Season with a little granulated garlic and Mrs. Dash and stir OFTEN to slightly brown, remove from pot and repeat until all peppers are slightly cooked.
4To empty soup pot add 1/3 c butter and 1/3 c of flour, mix to make a roux. Add 4 c of rich beef stock stirring constantly. Make sure there are no lumps in sauce. Add 1 tbsp. of A-1 sauce for flavor and 1 tsp of Kitchen Bouquet for color. Add steak and peppers back in, stir, and remove from heat. Salt to taste.
