  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 2 bell peppers, any colors, sliced thin
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

  • Remove from heat, garnish with green onions, and serve over rice or cauliflower rice.


If you are not using low sodium soy sauce and low sodium beef broth, be careful with how much salt you use on the steak and veggies.
