Hey Everyone!! I'm Erika. I'm a 28 year old, fashion loving, food blogging, midwestern girl! I grew up on hearty meals and enjoying the simple life of South Dakota. Ever since leaving home I have found a love for baking and cooking. I started this blog for my family and friends so that they can see how food blog recipes REALLY turn out. When I'm not too busy running the fashion world and have time for the blogging world, I will try to update the blog weekly. I am not a professional and probably never will be, so don't expect too much from me. :) I just love to have fun, get messy and make the simple things. ENJOY!

"Earthquake" Peppered Steak

Need a meal that is incredibly filling? BINGO! I was completely hesistant about this meal but I have come to regret it. It was very good, different and filling. I am still having a hard time figuring out how to explain this meal but since I have to fill you in, I would say it is a cross between asian and and down home? 

The Asian part comes from serving it with rice and the down home part comes from the heaviness of the food. Overall, it is extremely good and if needed, you can make this meal in bulk like I did.

16 oz of diced tomatoes
1/4- 1/2 Cup of chopped red peppers
1/4- 1/2 Cup of chopped green peppers                 ALL PEPPERS ARE TO YOUR PREFERENCE
1/4-1/2 Cup of chopped yellow peppers 
1/2 Cup of chopped onions
3 tablespoons of Soy Sauce
Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 cups of flour
Lowry's Seasoning
Steak/Pot Roast/Cubed Steak/Prime Rib (any red meat other than hamburger)
White Rice

***My pictures will show larger portions than what is being described! I was making twice as much to feed 7 people!***

Step One:
Take green, red and yellow peppers and chop into narrow pieces. Also, chop onion into narrow pieces. Once completely cut up, toss into large cooking pot.

Step Two:
Add diced tomatoes to peppers and 1 1/2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Start to cook on medium heat. Make sure to keep an eye on the vegetables so that they don't over cook while you are getting the meat ready. I cooked it for about 10 mins on med/high heat and then on low for the remaining time.

Step Three:
Cut up meat into small cubed pieces. Once meat is completely chopped up you will need to flour it. There is no right amount to use for flour but I found that for one roast, I used 1 1/2 cups of flour to completely coat each piece. Also, this is where you will want to add pepper for taste. I am not the biggest fan of pepper so I used about 1/4 tablespoon. For a stronger taste use 1/2 tablespoon.

Step Four:
Coat the bottom of your frying pan until evenly covered in vegetable oil. Heat on medium/high and CAREFULLY add meat. Stir around and cook meat until you reach your desired color. (I cooked mine for about 15 mins...No red!) The flour will coat the meat in a gravy substance.

Step Five:
Once meat is to desired color, season with 1 1/2 tablespoons of soy sauce and cook for another 2 mins. 

Step Six:
While the meat is marinating in the soy sauce, begin to make your rice. Follow the instructions on the box for the desired serving amounts. This whole recipe is off of how hungry YOU are and the people YOU are cooking for! :)

Step Seven:
Once meat has soaked in the soy sauce for a few minutes, add it to pot of vegetables. Stir together and you are done! Place the meat on top of a bed of rice and ENJOY!!

There is no website for this recipe. I got it from a friend! :)
