hot pepper steak stir fry

Succulent flank steak marinated and cooked with onions and hot peppers.

How is it Friday already? Not that I am complaining. I am SO ready for this weekend. The weather is suppose to be very Fall. We got a rake. Bring on the yard work.

I am also excited to get some baking done.  Pumpkin muffins anyone?  

We are finally getting into our groove at the new house as to what is where, especially in the kitchen. That means dinners are taking less time to put together. That doesn't mean however, I am looking to cook extensive meals during the hectic week. 

This dinner was so easy to put together and super delicious. It seems like pepper steak dinners were all over the internet lately. I never had all of the ingredients for a specific recipe so I hodge podged it together. We had quite a stock of hot peppers from our potted plants and used those in place of regular or sweet peppers.

We ate ours with steamed broccoli and white rice.  Everything came together in less than 20 minutes.  Might I say a near perfect quick week night dinner?
