    PEPPER STEAK

    1-2 lbs round steak
    1 medium onion
    2 cloves garlic
    1 large green bell pepper
    1 small can tomato sauce
    mushrooms
    salt
    pepper
    cornstarch
    olive oil
    2 cups water
    2 tablespoons sherry or dry red wine

    Trim all fat from steak, cut into small chunks and put aside. Use
    cusinart or chop onion and garlic into tiny pieces. Brown the onion
    and garlic in two tablespoons of the olive oil in a heavy skillet.
    Remove from pan and put steak in and turn heat up high and brown
    steak well. Remove steak from pan and add the wine or Sherry and
    boil down to evaporate, add water and scrape the pan to get the
    brown etc. mixed well with the water. Add the steak and browned
    onion/garlic. Add 1/2 to full can of the tomato sauce depending on
    your taste, it steak isn’t covered with the liquid, add more water.
    Let simmer for several hours, (adding water if too much evaporates)
    keep a cover on the skillet, but leave it slightly cracked to allow
    steam to escape.

    One hour into the cooking, remove one cup of liquid and reserve
    for later use. Taste steak occasionaly till very tender, then add
    mushrooms and pepper strips to mixture and let it cook till they
    are tender/crisp. At the time you add the last two ingredients
    mix 2-4 tablespoons of corn- starch with the reserved liquid (which
    should have cooled by this time) and slowly add this mixture to
    the pepper steak to thicken the dish and cook at least (bubbling)
    10 min. serve over rice
