My mom got this recipe years ago from a restaurant in Sacramento. The flavor of the olive oil really stands out, so use the good stuff.

I was searching the Internet for a copy cat recipe for Tony Baloney's pepper steak sandwiches. It's a tiny family run gem in Sacramento where I lived years ago. This is spot on the recipe. No doubt in my mind. Man I miss that place!
