Beef Chuck Steak W/Onions & Peppers

"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 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.

    Recipe as it stands is very bland. Thankfully I skimmed the reviews and made a number of modifications -- and turned out an excellent meal. GREAT WORK REVIEWERS! But this recipe by itself, very disappointing.

    What a great way to use my garden veggies. Thanks.

    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.

    seasoned with fresh pepper, sea salt, garlic and inst3ead of regular onion I used green onions, mushrooms green and red peppers (for color). I lightly floured the steak for browning and used butter to brown it. Instead of beef broth used Vegatable broth and instead of surface cooking (all prep done in cast iron skillet!) I covered and baked in 300 degree oven for 1 hour. Removed it from oven made a slighly thick flour rue added a smitdge of kitchen bouquet and waaaaallllllaaaaa! Excellent recipe for my family. Served with a baked potatoe and fresh leaf salad
