Step 1: Prep

First Seasoning the Meat. 

Combine, these seasonings in a large bowl together.

  •  ChilI Flakes ¼ teaspoon
  •  Oregano (Dried/Preferred) ½ teaspoon
  •  Garlic Powder ½ teaspoon
  •  Onion Powder ½ teaspoon
  •  A little Salt and Pepper.  
  • Optional: Ground Cumin  ½ teaspoon, Cayenne Pepper  ¼ teaspoon 

-Add the strips of meat to the bowl with the seasoning mix and coat throughly.

- After coating, set the bowl of meat to the side to marinate for 20-30 minutes, while you prepare the veggies. 

Veggies, Slice And Dice the following: 

  • Slice (1) Onion
  • Slice (2) Bell Peppers 
  • Mince (2-3) Cloves of Garlic
  • Dice (2-3) Large Tomatoes or use canned diced tomatoes (For Sauce) 
  • Optional: Mushrooms and Broccoli are also great additions if you like your veggies! 

-Set the veggies on the side for now and get out a large skillet!

Step 2: Heat 

Place a larger onto the stove.

-Adjust the heat to  medium to high settings and add some olive oil to the bottom of the  pan. 

Cook the marinating meat until almost cooked through (Be careful not to completely cook)

-Remove the meat from the pan, and set aside. 

While the pan is still hot, add a little more olive oil to the pan, and cook your veggies.

-Veggies should be slightly tender, cook to preference. 

-After the veggies are cooked to your liking, remove them from the pan and set them aside with the steak. 

Now add about 1 -2 cups of water and a pinch of  salt  (or chicken stock ) to the same pan and bring to boil.  

-Once the water in the  pan comes to a boil, add your favorite uncooked pasta and cook to your liking.

-When the pasta is almost cooked, add your diced tomatoes.

-After the tomatoes come to a simmer, add in the steak and veggies and give it a good stir. 

Once everything seems to be warmed and cooked, try stirring in a little avocado or sour cream to give the dish a little extra thickness that really brings everything together with the sauce.
