Peppery Philly Steaks

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

    Thank you Edie for a delicious and quick recipe. I actually used a frozen pull apart steak that I get at Costco, to make it even quickier & easier for me. I also didn't use the green chilies. Everyone enjoyed & I am passing this recipe on to my daughter.

    I love this recipe. I cut it in half for 2 people. It's good, easy, and fast.
