This Spicy Cast Iron Skillet Steak with Peppers has become a favorite in our family. In my house, our motto is “the spicier the better”!
My husband likes any excuse to use the cast iron skillet and this recipe adds a lot of seasoning to the pan! My favorite part of the recipe is all the fresh veggies that are thrown in that not only add flavor, they add brightness to the dish.
Our kids love veggies but I like to change up how they eat them. A little variety never hurt anyone! Add in the Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, honey and soy sauce – you get bold, savory flavors that are sure to make everyone clean their plate!
The Spicy Cast Iron Skillet Steak and Peppers recipe is an easy simple dinner you can throw together in 30 minutes, less if you like your steak on the rarer side.
