2 beef shoulder top blade (flat iron) steaks
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (16-ounce) package frozen Asian vegetable blend
1/4 cup water

1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine red and black peppers; press evenly onto beef steaks.

  3. Add frozen vegetables and water to skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  4. Add noodles and peanut sauce; toss to coat. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.
