Pepper Steak with Mushrooms

Cast your vote for Pepper Steak with Mushrooms

Not everyone in my family likes tomatoes so over the years, my pepper steak recipe has evolved to include mushrooms instead. It's a savory family favorite. I precut my ingredients and store them in the refrigerator so when it's time to make dinner, it's fast, easy and delicious.

Good job. As I've grown older, I can't eat as many tomatoes. Thank you for an alternative.

I like tomatoes, but since not everyone around the table does it is nice to find an alternative everyone likes. Thanks for leaving a comment, bearmom! Much appreciated.
