One-Skillet Steak & Peppers uses minimal ingredients but serves maximum flavour. It’s made all in one-skillet (who doesn’t love that?), and comes together in about 20 minutes, making this the perfect go-to recipe during the week.

I find myself coming back to my families simple recipes time and time again. This one in particular is my dads, and he’s made this recipe for me too many times to count. And for good reason, clean up is easy, it’s ready in under 30 minutes and serves to be a great recipe during those busy week-nights. With my two young boys in sports and extra circulars, I love being able to turn to my one-pot meals. Whether it’s my French Onion Chicken Thighs, Crispy Sticky Beef & Zucchini, Sheet Pan Rosemary Chicken & Potatoes, or Minute Steaks, I have enough one-pan meals to turn to when I need something quick and delicious. If this sounds like something you are looking for, well you’ve come to the right place!

Here is a quick overview of the ingredients you’ll need to make my One-Skillet Steak & Peppers. For the exact detailed measurements and ingredients, scroll to the bottom of this page to review my recipe card.

  • butter
  • garlic
  • bell peppers: any colour
  • yellow onion
  • white wine: chardonnay or sauvignon blanc
  • fresh parsley: option for garnish

Substitutions & FAQ’s

What can I substitue the white wine with?
If you don’t want to use the wine, chicken stock is a great alternative.

what type of steak do I need to buy for this recipe?
Minute steak can be cut from a variety of different muscles, so use what you have on hand, or what is cheapest at the grocery store. Typically minute steaks use sirloin as the cut which helps to ensure a more tender peice of meat, but you can also use rump or flank. Just be sure to cut the meat thin, tenderize with a meat mallet, and cook it quickly to prevent over cooking.

What should I serve on the side of this recipe?
Mashed potatoes, rice, French fries or a leafy green salad are a few personal favs.

Storing & reheating

Have leftovers? Lucky you. Store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days. To reheat your Steak & Peppers, simply microwave for 30-45 seconds with about 1/2 tsp of butter on the top. Keep in mind these won’t be as tasty as they were when fresh, but they still taste good!
