Servings: 2 people
  • 2 steaks
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 bell pepper sliced
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. In a bowl add the juice of 1 lemon and the minced garlic. Place the steaks and cover with the sliced onion and bell pepper. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes. You can let it overnight for extra flavor.
  2. Heat a cast iron over medium heat and heat the oil. Sear the meat for both sides. Then add the marinade with the veggies. Remove the steak when it's done (you can cook it medium rare, medium or well done). Cook the veggies until they are soft.
  3. Serve the steak and cover with the sauteed veggies.
