How To: Beef Steak With Rice And Peppers

Home | Jul 28, 2014

Chef Egi in the house! Tonight I made beef steak with rice and fried peppers. How did I make it? Easily! Here are the steps.

First, I took a big pot and added chopped onions, tomatoes, and olive oil. I let it cook for just a bit then added the beef steak I got from the grocery store. I mean where else would I get it from?! You ever make or say unnecessary comments that are absolutely common sense-ish? Like the one I just made? fml. Anyway, after I added the beef steak, I added 2 small cups of water. Put a lid on it and let it cook on medium high.

In another pot, I took one bag of spanish rice (you can find these at the store easily) and added it in along with 2 cups of water. Here’s one trick to amazing rice my grandma taught me. For each cup of rice, add 2 cups of warm water, and cook it on low. That’s it. Never fails me.

As for the green peppers, I took a fry pan and added 3 table spoons of olive oil. I normally cook with olive oil only. I turned the heat on high then added 5 anaheim green peppers. They are the long, skinny ones. They can be spicy so the trick is to not eat the seeds if you don’t like spicy food. I hate it personally so when I eat this I just get rid of the seeds. Once I placed the peppers in there, I added one small cup of water and put the lid on it. Before I forget, make sure to slice the pepper on both sides so that you make a small opening on it. If not, when you cook them you may sometimes hear a POP sound and oil will splash everywhere. It’s due to the high heat and the pepper getting filled up with no hole to burst out of. So cutting just a tiny slit on each side of it will get rid of that problem.

20140728_172244I’m horrible at explaining food or recipes. I don’t know how people do it but this is like trying to speak another language right now. I have no clue if I’m making any sense so please feel free to ask me ANY questions. I will try to explain it further more.

While you are cooking all of this, make sure to always check on the steak. You will find yourself adding more water as it continues cooking. Continue adding water until the meat is soft and ready to fall apart without needing a knife. But please keep an eye on it. It can very easily burn if you don’t water it as necessary. The rice also needs to be checked after 20 minutes or so. Once it is done, turn the heat off. You don’t want to burn the bottom of it. As for the peppers, they will take a while to fry. But they need to be turned often. Also, each time you turn them sprinkle just a bit of sea salt over them. It will make them SOOOO yummy!

On top of this, I made a regular salad with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and olive oil & vinegar. I also used a little bit of sea salt. That’s it 🙂

Gio eats whatever the rest of the family eats. I just blend it with Baby Bullet. Always add a little bit of water to the mixture before you blend it. This will make it not sticky and easier to eat.
