This would be Moroccan inspired rather than something that is actually eaten in Morocco. It is quick and easy and has a nice flavor. Any pepper will do but if you use a yellow or orange one the dish is prettier. This is good served over coucous.

Very nice, easy, fast dish with LOADS of fantastic flavor! I used a bottled garlic salsa and followed the remainder right down the line. Served with quinoa, Smokey hard boiled eggs, and a huge glass of ice cold milk! ;o) Thanks, Happy Mom!
My head is spinning! We loved this dish. The humble cube steak that I only eaten in the form of chicken fried steak gets its day in the sun! Cut the recipe in half, but used the same amount of cinnamon and cumin. Added the bell peppers only the last few minutes of cooking so that they maintain their crispness. Garnished the steaks with the cilantro. Let's see...oh, and made my own semi-chunky salsa using Thai pepper. Hot, but not explosivley so at least for our palate. Served this lovely dish over Saffron Couscous. The sauce-spicy, exotic and delicately sweet. I highly recommend this dish especially if your repertoire of cooking with cube steak is limited to chicken fried steak. Besides, this was an inexpensive meal, too! Thanks for sharing. cg ;)
