beef and peppers

I find myself always running out of time since I started to work again. Although it is only a 6-hour day job, I need about 40 minutes to drive to work and the same back, so that means 1 hour 20 minutes every day.  And on weekends there are lists of house chores and other stuff to do. So lately I really have little time or energy to cook elaborate meals.  Good thing, Armin is not a picky customer;-). So quick and easy recipes are my life saver of late. Just like this Beef and Peppers recipe.

I got this recipe from my mama who got it from my aunt. It is a really simple recipe, consisting mainly of beef and lots of bell peppers. Bell peppers in the Philippines are not that cheap, I think it is because they are only grown in cool places which Philippines is definitely not, except for two places I know: Baguio and Tagaytay. So when I got a bag of bell peppers when I went food shopping yesterday and this is the first thought that entered my mind.

Cooking beef can be tricky sometimes unless you get a prime cut beef which can be very expensive, they could turn dry and chewy. The technique I learned for sauteing beef is to cook it quickly over high heat and not to overcook it to keep it tender.
