Pepper Steak

Pepper steak is a dish I’ve been eating since I was about eight years old. My recipe is a little different than my mother’s but retains enough of the same flavor that each time I make it it brings back good childhood memories.

This was actually the first dish that I would eat the peppers in and started me on my love of bell peppers. Before Mama cooked this I would only eat the stuffing from stuffed bell peppers.
