This super easy side-dish is wonderful with any type of grilled or pan-fried steak. Good as left-overs, too. No idea about it's origin, it's been a family recipe for 40 years.

Julienne'd the pepper. Added, quarter of an onion finely diced, 2 tbsp of Soy sauce and 1.5 tsp of lemon juice, didn't add the salt (because of the soy sauce). Came up really nice.
