Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 3 mins

Cook: 12 mins

  • 3 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 bag  (10 oz.) frozen sliced bell peppers
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
  • 7 ounces flatiron steak
  • 4 hero (sub) rolls, split, some inner crumbs removed
  1. Position a broiler rack 4 to 5 inches from the heat, and a second rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the broiler. In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp. EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the onion and bell peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 4 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar, oregano and remaining 2 tbsp. EVOO. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Season the steak with salt and pepper and broil, turning once, for about 8 minutes for medium-rare. While the steak is broiling, toast the rolls on a baking sheet on the bottom rack for 3 minutes.
  4. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes (if you can spare the extra time), then thinly slice. Toss with the onion and peppers, then the dressing. Serve the pepper steak in the rolls.
Tip Flatiron Steak...
  • This inexpensive cut of beef has tons of flavor. The real bonus? It cooks up in a flash.
  • An Extra Buck Will Buy arugula. Line the bottom of the rolls with a handful of this green to add a peppery punch.
