Reviews for Cajun Pepper Steak
"Excellent recipe. Like in the first review, I tweaked it a little. I did not use bay leaves or basil . Also, If you are not a fan of really spicy foods I recommend using less cajun seasoning"
"I love this recipe and so has everyone I have ever made it for; although I tweaked it a little! I like spicy so instead of diced tomato I used a can of Rotel, I skipped the bay leaf, and basil, and used 1 tsp. of Cajun seasoning. Yum...always a hit."
