Quick Pepper Steak
I had always used "Round Steak" as my mother did. I found myself with a package of stew bf and decided to use the fresh veggies I had. The stew beef cooked faster and was very tender.
The key to a recipe like this, is to never let the water boil off..you have a dinner in half the time as if you had used a tougher cut of meat. (Next I will try Beef and Broccoli using stew bf!)

- Add 1/4 of onion, and stir meat to get a light sear..add water to bring meat to a boil. Cover & let water cook off (about 15 minutes), if meat is still pink, add more water to cover meat and reduce to Medium heat. Let come to a boil.
- At 30 minutes..add green, red peppers, remaining onion and mushrooms. Pour in Tomato Sauce, cover and return to a rolling boil..approx 1 and 1/2 hrs..give it a good stir from the bottom to the top, add salt, pepper and garlic ppr to taste.
- Reduce heat for remaining time.
Once the meat is fork tender..serve over mashed potatoes, noodles or rice.
