Italian Pepper Steak
Thin tender strips of sirloin steak are served with sauteed sweet peppers and onion in this pleasing entree from the kitchen of Nancy Saffield, a field editor from Pasadena, Maryland. Sometimes I serve this steak with steamed sugar snap peas and a light Caesar salad," she says.
