  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the steak and sear on both sides. Remove the steak and turn down the heat to medium. 
  2. Add in the mushrooms and cook until all the moisture has evaporated, about 6 minutes.
  3. Add in peppers, onions, salt, pepper, garlic powder and water. Scrap up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan and let cook for 6-8 minutes until the vegetables are starting to soften.
  4. Add back in the steak and cook until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Top the mixture with cheese and cover and cook until melted.
  6. Serve immediately as is or with white rice or cauliflower rice.

Recipe Notes

  1. If you cannot find top sirloin, skirt steak and rib eye will also work.
  2. Pro-tip for slicing the steak: Place the steak in the freezer for 15 minutes and then slice the steak against the grain as thinly as possible.
