I would strongly disagree with the preparation directions in this recipe. It is a simple fact that mushrooms give off a lot of moisture and take longer to saute than peppers and onions. Therefore, I sauteed the mushrooms first, removed them from the pan; and then added a bit more oil and sauteed the peppers and onions together (more forgiving than mushrooms). Otherwise, you end up steaming the veggies and no flavor. We also splashed some Worcestershire on the steak prior to cooking, grilled it whole, and then sliced after a few minutes resting. (Adding beef to veggies is recipe for an overcrowded pan and no searing.) The four stars reflects the modifications I described above. Otherwise, I can understand the lower ratings. Served with baked chips and raw veggies to dip in CL's Sour Cream and Onion Dip (Aug 2013).
