Jane Russell's Green Pepper Steak

Take a gander at Jane's venerable recipe. It's been around since at least the 1960's.

Green Pepper Steak is a girl's best friend?

Serves 4

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 pounds top round steak in 1/2" strips

2 green bell peppers cut in thin strips

2 onions coarsely chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

8 ounces mushrooms sliced

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons salt

1 cup red wine

1 teaspoon curry powder

3 or 4 cups of beef or chicken broth (optional)

Cooked rice

To a large skillet, add olive oil. Brown steak. Add green peppers and onions and continue to sauté/fry till vegetables are tender. Add in garlic, mushrooms, black pepper and salt, cook 2 more minutes. Add wine, cover, cook over low heat for half an hour. Stir in curry powder, continue to simmer 1 1/2 hours. If more liquid is needed, add broth. (Editor's note: chances are good it will be.) Serve over rice.
