Smothered Steak

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 pound flank steak trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/2 cup low sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 cup sliced white button mushrooms
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese 1-oz.
  • 4 cups chopped spinach


  • Toss steak strips in a large zipper-topped plastic bag with oregano, garlic, salt and pepper; seal bag and refrigerate overnight or for at least 1 hour.
  • Heat half of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add steak strips and cook, stirring often, for 5 to 7 minutes or until they reach desired level of doneness; remove from pan. Add broth to the skillet and whisk up all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Add remaining olive oil and, when hot, add onion, bell pepper and mushrooms; cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until veggies are tender-crisp.
  • Return steak strips to the skillet and heat through. Remove skillet from the heat and place cheese slices on top of steak/veggie mixture; cover and allow skillet to sit for 5 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  • Serve over spinach and enjoy!
