Pepper steak is a quick and easy meal with flank steak and peppers. It’s often made as a stir fry, but I like to grill the steak and peppers. It’s just as quick, and you get a little smoky flavor from the grill.

The vegetables are lightly seasoned, and you don’t need to do any prep for the steak. Flank steak has a lot of flavors on its own.

For a low-carb dinner, I like to serve the steak and peppers on their own, but you can add rice on the side. It’s light and full of fresh flavors from the peppers.
