Tasty Sweet Pepper Dish

I promise I'm trying to update on a semi-regular basis.  Sometimes it feels like I'm talking into the vast unknown of nothingness.  I'm hoping these recipes are ones that you'll use, enjoy, maybe even modify and make your own.  Feel free to comment and tell me if you tried one of the dishes I've posted, or maybe just click the little box under the blog.  I'd love to hear your opinions!

Tonight I tried something totally different, random, and EASY.  It turned out great, so I'm sharing.  Aren't you lucky?

Pork with Sweet Peppers (Feel free to substitute chicken or beef for this one)

Need:  1 lb pork (or chicken or beef)
           1/2 red pepper, 1/2 yellow pepper, and 1/2 orange pepper
           1 small onion
           1/2 tbs crushed garlic
           2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
           1 tsp ginger powder
           1 dash crushed red pepper flakes
           1 tsp salt (more if taste dictates)
           1 tsp pepper (more if taste dictates)
           2 tsp oregano
           1/2 cup soy sauce substitute

Prep:  Slice 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 yellow pepper, and 1/2 orange pepper into strips.  Dice a small onion into medium sized chunks, slice your meat of choice into thin strips and lightly season with salt and pepper

Step 1:  Saute your pepper strips, garlic, and onion in a tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan until the onions are translucent and the peppers are still slightly firm.  Remove from pan.

Step 2:  Add your meat to the remaining tablespoon of olive oil along with the ginger powder, crushed red pepper flakes, and oregano.

Step 3:  Once the meat is almost done, add the peppers mix back to your saucepan, and pour in your soy sauce substitute.  Let simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 4:  Serve over rice with broccoli or asparagus as a side!  Enjoy hot!
