Another tasty, delicious, simple, and easy meal that incorporates whole foods and optimum health benefits is this 3 ingredient beef with peppers and tomatoes. Lean beef that is grass-fed and organic would be the optimal choice here. The peppers and tomatoes are capable of producing their own yummy juices so you can have a tasty meal in minutes.
Now you might say that technically, this is really a 3 ingredient recipe because of the onions, garlic and soy sauce, but it is just as easy and quick.
Beef with Peppers and Tomatoes
For this recipe, you will need:
- 1 pound of round steak
- 2 medium green bell peppers*
- 2 medium ripe tomatoes
For seasonings, you will need whole pressed, extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. For sautéing purposes, you will need two cloves of garlic and 1 small onion.
Chop the onion and garlic, place inside the hot olive oil. Cut the peppers and tomatoes and add into the oil, garlic and onions that are sautéing. Salt to taste. Let the tomatoes and peppers wilt so they are both tender to the taste, but not too mushy and overcooked. They should be soft, but have a little resistance when bitten into. Cut beef into strips beforehand and add to the pan, stir-fry on both sides, adding soy sauce to the pan.
Stir well, cooking beef to your liking; preferably, a slight pink on the inside with the outer layers of the strips being nicely browned.
Again, if you like you can add this on top of rice or even some wide whole grain noodles. The juices from the peppers and tomatoes will be add a nice additional flavor to either the rice or the noodles.
* If you would like more color in your meal, you could always use different colored bell peppers…such as green, yellow or orange.
