paleo pepper steak with vegetables
Fresh red, green and yellow bell peppers
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1/4 cup olive oil or alternateFor the marinade:
1/2 cup each lemon juice and oil
1/2 cup each tomato and onion, chopped fine
1 tablespoon crushed garlic
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Marinate steak for 6 to 10 hours or overnight. Cut meat, peppers, mushrooms and onions in strips. Heat pan and add oil, then put meat and vegetables in when oil is hot. Stir fry until well done. Serve topped with fresh cilantro or parsley. Side dishes might be sweet potato or yam.
True paleo steak is usually grass-fed pastured beef or, better yet, buffalo. As always, the best vegetables are those grown in your own garden and harvested just before cooking.
Many people dislike olive oil or find it hard to digest. Acceptable substitutes are sesame, coconut, walnut, macadamia and avocado oils. Choose an oil that is high in omega-3 fatty acids if possible.
