2 large bell peppers, sliced into thin strips

Juice of 1 lime
2 Tablespoons of olive oil

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, including stems

Mix all marinade ingredients. Set the steak slices in the marinade and let it sit at least an hour, the longer the better.

Heat to medium-high heat a large cast iron pan or griddle. Add a teaspoon of olive oil to the pan. Add the sliced steak, frying to desired doneness. If pan starts to smoke, reduce the heat. Remove from pan and let sit.

Retain the pan heat at medium high. Add a little more oil to the pan if necessary. Add the onions, bell peppers. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, until the onions are slightly translucent.

Add the sliced meat and heat until everything is mixed and hot.
