Growing up, my grandmother would make dishes that you could smell from a mile away. Full of flavor, these are the homemade foods that you can't buy in any restaurant! So when I got married, the first recipe I begged my grandma for was her mouthwatering pepper steak. Thankfully, it turns out that it is much easier to make than I had thought and carrying on her tradition of Southern cooking makes me so proud.
Rustic Pepper Steak
1 lb. Top Sirloin steak
2 Tbsp Crisco
1/4 chopped onion
1/2 clove garlic
salt & pepper
1 beef boullion cube (2 if you like a little extra flavor!)
2 Tbsps soy sauce
2 Tbsps corn starch
1 lb canned stewed tomatoes
1 large green pepper
Heat large skillet on medium high and melt Crisco. Slice steak into 1 inch cubes and brown for 15 minutes. Add chopped onion and whole garlic clove. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 cup of hot water and the bullion cube/s (crush and stir in melted bullion cube) Simmer covered on medium heat for 25 minutes.
Add chopped green pepper and stewed tomatoes (you may have to cut the tomatoes up) cook for 20 minutes.
In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce and corn starch with 1/4 cup of cold water. Stir the soy sauce mixture in with meat and veggies on medium high heat, stirring consistently for 5 minutes and bring to a boil.
Remove garlic clove and serve hot over egg noodles. Enjoy!
