This is one of those meals that never excited me enough to make. I made it up for the first time tonite and wouldn’t you know, it was great and everyone liked it. The big pluses – easy to prep, easy to cook, easy to clean-up. Oh, and I forgot to mention cheap.
4-6 cubed steaks
enough flour for breading
oil or butter
large can of whole tomatoes
Chop the peppers & onions into large bitesize chunks.
Heat oil or butter in large skillet on med-low heat.
Saute peppers & onion slightly. Then begin breading steaks in flour, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste & fry in skillet 2-3 minutes on each side; push the peppers & onions to the side of skillet.
Pour whole tomatoes (including all the liquid) into the skillet & redistribute peppers & onions over the meat. Continue to cook until tomatoes are heated through and the liquid begins to thicken just a bit.
Serve with any variety of rice or noodles.
I consider this a workhorse recipe. It does what it is supposed to do with minimal fuss or flash. Nothing fancy, just plain & hearty. I need more workhorse recipes. Do you have any of these types of recipes?
