Step 1

slice onion into frypan, saute with oil,garlic and peppers to the degree of kick you desire.
remove oniions, keep warm, add steaks and saute till done.
add onions and tomatoes, cutting up tomatoes to cover the steaks. simmer, use tomato juice if more sauce/"gravy" desired.

Step 2

serve over a scoop or two of cooked rice.


you can thicken the sauce by shaking a little tomato juice with some flour.
substituting a spicy V-8 beverage in place of tomato juice makes the "gravy" more interesting.
I love serving this with a big pot of previously frozen, cooked mixed veggies, mixing my serving in a bowl with some of the tomato "gravy".
