Lightly Spiced, Salt and Pepper Steak – Marsay Family Favourite

An easy to prepare, slow cooked dish, this Lightly Spiced Salt and Pepper Steak, makes for a perfect Light Meal, paired with a Salad.  If steak is not your choice of protein, then try my recipe with chicken, which is just as easy and delicious.

I SHOULD BE PACKING!!! shhh..Let not my better-half know about this sneaky blog post publication.  I managed to have a quick time out, from packing, to share this very easy to make and delicious dish, that is perfect for hot summer days, or days that are hectic and busy, or like myself, days prior to travels.  Even during such crazed days, we need to take care of our meal options.  Choosing to have good, home cooked, nutritious meals, should be a priority for us all.  This is one of my FAMILY FAVOURITE dishes, that has been made for generations.

I do refer to it as “SALT AND PEPPER”, although as you will see in my recipe, I make use of a few other spices.  But the spice amounts are very minute, that it adds only a subtle spicy undertone.  This Lightly Spiced, Salt and Pepper Steak, is slow cooked on a low heat, until the steak, or chicken, is tender.  And worry not about left-overs, If this is not finished at your dinner table, it makes for a wonderful sandwich/tortilla wrap filling, for a packed lunch.
