Sirloin, Pepper and Onion Skillet

Recipe by  

"It's like fajitas without the tortillas! This simple, pan-seared steak gets great flavor from a savory sauce . . . but best of all, it's topped with cheese. Steak just doesn't get any better!"

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until it's well browned on both sides. Remove the beef from the skillet. Pour off any fat. Reduce the heat to medium.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in the skillet. Add the onion and peppers and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring often.
  3. Add the vinegar to the skillet and cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the soup and water and heat to a boil. Return the beef to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook the beef for 2 minutes for medium or until desired doneness. Sprinkle with the cheese.

This was really great, I did double the balsamic for a little more kick, and I seasoned the steak with pepper, garlic, and red pepper flakes, also added red pepper flakes to the sauce as it cooked with the vegetables. YUM!

Added fajita seasoning to the meat in the skillet which helped with the blandness that earlier reviews warned about. Still, this won't be a repeat recipe. Also, it seemed to wrong adding the soup to the beautiful crisp tender vegetables.

I followed the recipe exactly. It was very good. I almost didnt add the cheese, but Im glad I did. All the favors blended very well. Thanks!

Definitely a good meal when served with Spanish rice. I cooked the steak in one piece the first time it was in the skillet but when I returned it to the pan with the veggies, etc. I cut it into slices. Not a particularly flavorful dish but very popular. I made double the portion for 6 guests and it was all gone.

This recipe actually popped up in a search for steak fajitas so I thought "why not?" I sliced the beef into thin strips before beginning the recipe and omitted the water so the sauce wouldn't be too thin. I served on small taco size tortillas. Just a little messy but so good! DH, my picky eater had six! Definitely a keeper!

Big thumbs up from my family. Added mashed potatoes as a side, went great with the sauce.

I made this a couple weeks ago, used one red and one green pepper, served it with mashed potatoes and a fresh salad. It was wonderful! Only ate half and reheated the next day, chopping up the steak into smaller pieces which made a wonderful stew. Highly recommend.

Good recipe for steaks when you can't grill.
