    Bill Hilbrich's Note:

    This was written for the Solo Cook, however it illustrates a cooking concept rather than a detailed recipe, and the serving could be enough for two people if a side salad was included with the meal. Cooking is a creative sport, so the cook should feel free to change the amounts of spices, or maybe substitute carrots for the bell peppers. A large Cast Iron Skillet with a snug fitting cover seems to work best for me. An interesting variation is to add sliced mushrooms and 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg at the start of the cooking, and then stir in several tablespoons of sour cream just before serving.

      I used some sliced beef from the deli counter, and carrots subbed for the pepper. I chose light beer for the liquid. This was flavorful and filling. Served with Dillied Beer Bread on the side and Almost Apple Pie for One for dessert. great supper on a chilly night! Thanks for posting Bill. Made for My3Chefs Nov '09.
