I LOVE easy dishes that will feed a lot of people. I make this dish for large winter and summer gatherings. I like to eat this beef with rice, noodles, or as a sandwich. If it is just for Andrew and I, then I will turn the leftover beef and peppers into a soup and freeze the rice for a later use.
I originally found this recipe in my taste of home cookbook but you can also find it online.
