Steak Italiano


Lidia oh Lidia. Have you met Lidia?

Here in Kansas City is one of her restaurants. It's on my list to visit one of these days. 
At this particular restaurant they feature a steak and potato dish.  
This is my version of that recipe. I call mine "Steak Italiano". 
This is really good. The steak tender, the fries crisp, and just hint of sweetness from the veggies. This is good eating KC style. The boy sat up and said " more please"

1- 10 oz strip steak
1/4 small onion
 1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper
2 cloves garlic
4 oz can sliced mushrooms
1/3 cup marinara sauce
3 tbl olive oil
Frozen steak fries
Seasoning salt
Salt and pepper

For the fries, preheat  oven according  to package directions. Put a single layers of fries on a greased cookie sheet. Cook to package directions.
In a large skillet heat oil. Add the steak. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 7  minutes on medium heat. Season the other side also. 
Meanwhile slice the peppers, onion,  into small strips. Mince the garlic.
After desired doneness, remove the steak from the pan. 
Add the veggies to the pan. Stir fry until tender. Add the marinara sauce. Cook on low heat another 5 minutes. 
Remove fries from the oven, sprinkle with seasoning salt. 
Slice the steak into strips. Serve steak, add veggie mixture on top of sliced steak. Add the fries on the side.
