The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
This peppered steak recipe features sweet green peppers, which are readily available in the summertime, especially if you have a garden in your backyard. These green beauties are packed with healthy nutrients - we should all be eating more, and this recipe serves up a tasty way to get them on your table.
Lois Elaine's Peppered Steak:
1 1/2 lb. stew meat - cut in strips
dash of soy sauce
1/2 of a large green pepper, cut in strips
1 c. celery, chopped
1 can beef consomme'
1 medium can mushrooms
Brown meat and onion with garlic salt and a little black pepper. When almost done, add mushrooms and brown a little more. Add consomme' and one can of water. Add a dash or two of soy sauce, to taste. Let simmer until tender, about 45 minutes. Before serving, add the green pepper strips and celery. Thicken a little. Don't overcook the greens.
This is great served over egg noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.
