Back to Good

The holidays are over.

We are all settling back into our normal routines of returning to work and the kids going back to school.
The over indulging of rich and heavy festive foods has given way to healthier fare.

This dish is one of my favourites. The lean sirloin steaks, green peppers and lypocene rich tomatoes make it healthy and low in fat. It pairs well with mashed potatoes and broccoli.

Once this dish goes in the oven you will have plenty of time for helping the kids with their homework or relax and unwind from a long day at work.


Swiss Style Smothered Steak

  • ~ olive oil
  • ~flour
  • 4 lean sirloin steaks
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves diced
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of beef broth
  • 1 tsp each of oregano and black pepper
Preheat oven to 350F
Sprinkle flour on a plate and coat steaks evenly on both sides.
In an oven proof dutch oven heat the oil and brown steaks.
In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the steaks.

Bring to a boil, cover and place in the oven for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
