Braised Cubed Steak with Peppers and Olives

Serves: 4

Braised Cubed Steak with Peppers, Onions and Olives is a flavorful, budget-friendly and family friendly dish you can make in the Instant Pot, Slow Cooker or in a pot on the stove.

Dovetailing Tip: Pull out the red pepper strips you prepared during Meal 1 to use in this recipe.

Dovetailing tip: When slicing the red onion, slice an additional 1/2 of an onion into 1" pieces. Save these pieces to use in the Steak Kabobs for Meal 5. Chop the other ½ onion and save for the Black Bean Salad for Meal 5. Finally, finely chop a small onion and save for the Oat Groats and Kale for Meal 4.

Dovetailing tip: Use 1 1/2 cups of the brown rice you made for Meal 1. Heat and serve the Cube Steak over the rice.
