Steak Potatoes and Peppers

steakPotatoesAndPeppersWhile visiting Mike and Katherine in Maryland, we all arrived home dog tired after a long day at work.  I threw this recipe together to make use of some leftovers.  Each of us had second helpings, eating every last bite, so I guess it didn’t suck.


  • 9 small red potatoes, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. garlic paste, or minced fresh garlic
  • 16 oz. steak tenderloin
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • Place steak in freezer 20 minutes before slicing
  • Melt butter in 12 in. deep dish frying pan over medium heat
  • Stir in garlic
  • Add potatoes, cover and cook over medium heat 10 min.
  • Stir in sliced peppers, cook another 5 min.
  • Add thyme, salt and pepper to taste
  • Remove steak from freezer, slice into 1/4 in. thick strips
  • Remove cover, increase heat to high
  • Stir in steak, cook until done, stirring frequently
  • Serve and hope it doesn’t suck
