1/2 to 1 teaspoon teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 large onion, chopped
1 to 2 jalapeno peppers, thinly sliced *

3 cups hot cooked pasta or rice for accompaniment

  3. Sprinkle onion and jalapeno peppers on steaks. Add 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil. Cover tightly and cook in 325°F oven 45 minutes. Add tomatoes and bell peppers. Continue cooking, covered, 30 to 45 minutes or until steaks are fork-tender. Remove steaks; keep warm.

* The heat of peppers is in the membrane and seeds. If you prefer less heat, use a sharp paring knife to halve the pepper and remove the membrane and seeds prior to slicing.
