The weather has been beautiful the past two days. Yesterday was nice enough to enjoy using my grill. I was inspired to make this dish by finding these very pretty purple peppers at Whole Foods the other day. I love incorporating color into my meals. It even helps get the little ones excited about veggies. These were too pretty to pass up!



Grilled Steak with Greek Peppers

For the meat:

  • 2 steaks. I used filet
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • touch of olive oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • fresh black pepper, to taste

I trimmed the meat and sliced it lengthwise so the pieces were thinner and grilled quicker. I mixed the lemon juice and olive oil in one small bowl. The sea salt and pepper in another. I brushed each side of the meat with the lemon juice/olive oil. Then rubbed the sea salt/pepper into the meat.

I grilled on low until the steaks were about medium well. Slice up the steaks, set aside.

For the Peppers

  • 2 small purple bell peppers
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 Tbsp of my Greek Seasoning 
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • Several handfuls of spinach/arugula mix. You could also just use spinach. I just had this leafy green mix
  • Fresh chopped Italian parsley, to taste.
  • Feta, to taste
  • Whole wheat Pitas

Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the minced garlic. Heat for a minute. Add the sliced peppers, Greek seasoning, vinegar, and lemon juice. Cook until peppers are tender. Add the spinach/arugula and the sliced up steak. Allow leafy greens to wilt. Add parsley, mix well. Serve on warm whole wheat pita bread. Top with a little feta.
