Beef Chuck Steak W/Onions & Peppers

Total Time

I came up with this for our dinner tonight and DH said that it was excellent and that I needed to post it on that "recipe website" The meat is simmered with the onions and peppers which are then made into a gravy. You could also add mushrooms which I didn't due to an allergy. I did, however, saute some on the side for DH.

I saved it by adding tons of stuff which kinda of ruins the idea of a recipe. Bland. And I used the mushrooms and several different colors of peppers. I love potroasts of all kinds, but this needs a lot of work--bay leaf? worcestershire? thyme? garlic? something for flavor. Have to agree with a previous reviewer--very very plain.

This recipe was pretty good. However, I found that the steak was very plain. I would make this again, however, I would add some steak spice. I served this meal with rice.

I have done this and Worcestershire sauce and garlic are a must also I season the meat with a bit of kosher salt and cracked black pepper before I brown it and I as a Puerto Rican I sprinkle it at the end with a bit of cilantro most people do parsley.
