PEPPER STEAK WITH RICE


I used to make this long ago. It was one of my ex's favorites. A friend asked me if I had a recipe for using up some of the peppers she had and I remembered this one. Its an old classic. My friend made a few changes tho that I just might try. She grilled the peppers and onions first, and she also grilled the steak sprinkled with the paprika. If you do that, I would use a good quality steak instead of the round. She also used brown rice instead of white.

I would love to make this, if I could only get my husband and children to eat peppers and onions! I grew up eating a lot of home grown peppers, and we frequently had stuffed peppers, stuffed cabbage rolls, the whole Eastern European nine yards. I would marry a guy who hates peppers and onions and tomatoes, though he will eat spaghetti sauce and sun dried tomatoes...and he hates raisins too!
