Lunch / Dinner
If you’re looking to make healthier dinner choices, you might think steak — known for its relatively high levels of fat and cholesterol — is off the table entirely. Not so, when you serve it in a way to stretch portions, amp up flavor, and pair it with an extra-healthy side dish like this Parmesan Spaghetti Squash.
Dredge steak in flour. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add steak and brown, 2 minutes per side.
Deglaze pan with wine, scraping up any brown bits. Add tomatoes, onions, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes. Reduce heat to low and simmer steak, covered, 10 minutes.
Stir in bell peppers; simmer mixture until steak is tender, 15 minutes.
For good browning and flavor, dredge the steak in flour, then sauté it over relatively high heat.
To blend their flavors, deglaze the pan with wine, then add tomatoes and onions and simmer, covered.
Add the red and green bell peppers and cook so they lose their raw bite and the steak is moist and tender.
