Peppery Philly Steaks Recipe

Since we love to cook and eat, my husband and I are always developing new recipes. This is one we especially enjoy when we have fresh peppers. Our home is a small mountain cabin that's 3 hours from town. We have no electricity or phone...and we cook about half the time on a wood stove. -Edie Fitch, Clifton, Arizona
