Ingredients

For the steak

  • 2 Tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • Two 8-ounce steaks
  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil

For the spinach and beans

  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon complete seasoning
  • 1 15-ounce can cannellini beans
  • 5 Ounces spinach

Directions

For the steak

In a bowl, mix the pepper and salt. Coat the sides of each piece of steak in the pepper and salt mixture, making sure to cover the surface of the sides. 

In a medium-sized frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the steaks, covered, for about 5 minutes on each side for medium.

For the spinach and beans

In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the olive oil and 1/2 of the garlic powder and complete seasoning over medium heat. Add the beans, then add the remaining garlic powder and complete seasoning. Mix together for about 3 minutes. Next, add the spinach, carefully folding it into the beans. Cook until the spinach has turned a dark green color, then remove immediately from the heat to prevent overcooking.

Serve with the steak.

Pepper Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Pepper Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
