Serves 2 (serving size: 1 steak and about 1/2 cup bell pepper mixture)

Make sure the cast-iron skillet is hot before adding the steaks so that they get a nicely browned crust on both sides. We like both red and orange peppers, though just one color will work.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, and swirl to coat. Add onion, garlic, and bell peppers to pan; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Step 2

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle steaks evenly with remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Combine butter and chipotle chile in a bowl. Divide butter mixture over steaks. Serve with bell pepper mixture.

Really Flavorful!

This recipe is really delicious without a lot of effort or time. I loved it paired with Cooking Light's recipe for Cilantro-Cumin Couscous too. For step-by-step photos of the recipe, visit:

The chipotle butter had the perfect amount of kick -- not too spicy. I doubled the entire butter recipe thinking it wouldn't be enough butter for the entire steak but it would have been fine without doubling it! Also the veggies were great too! Highly recommended!

I used petite thin sirloin for this recipe as that is what I had on hand. I pretty much followed according to recipe except I had a few fresh mushroom and added them into the sauté. I used Trader Joes 3 min brown rice. Recipe came together super easy and we loved the flavor.

We grilled the steaks.  The chile butter was perfect on top and really brought out the smokey quality to the grilled meat.  The sauteed peppers and onion was a nice side.  Would make again.
