Saving a tough steak!!!

I bought meat at Costco for the first time and, instead of skirt steak, accidentally picked up flank steak which I don’t normally have any luck with whatsoever. I salted and peppered half of the package and grilled it. Sure enough, the results were what I was expecting. Flavorful but tough as usual. What was I going to do with half of the leftover flank steak (over 2 lbs!)? My mind started to work: this steak must not go to waste! Well…guest what? It turned out that I made a fabulous new recipe for the flank steak.

Diced Flank Steak with Daikon & Red Bell Peppers

4 large cloves of garlic chopped

1 large onion diced

1 large heirloom or regular tomato diced

2 ½ lbs flank steak diced

2 dry bay leaves

4 dry red chili peppers

¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup worcestershire

1 large white daikon diced

2 large red bell peppers diced

1 tbsp cracked black pepper

Saute garlic in 2 tbsp olive oil. Add onions and cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook for another minute. Add the meat and cook for about 3 minutes or until the liquid from the tomatoes is absorbed. Add bay leaves, chili peppers, remaining olive oil, soy sauce, worcestershire, daikon, bell peppers and black pepper. Stir constantly and continue cooking over medium-low heat until vegetables are cooked and sauce thickens (about 20 minutes). Serve hot with steamed rice or corn tortillas.
