Pepper Steak with a Twist...

1/2 pound lean steak
1 small onion
1 small tomato
1 1/2 cups cooked cabbage
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce

Cut steak into 1/2 inch thick strips. Chop onion and tomato into large pieces.

Saute onion in olive oil until almost tender. Add steak and saute until almost done. Add tomato, garlic, cabbage and soy sauce and continue cooking until warm throughout.

I decided to use cabbage because I had some already cooked and was out of green peppers. If you want to cut the sodium you can leave the soy sauce out. It wasn't enough to really taste it and would have been just as good without it.

This was a lot for one meal, and could be divided into two meals with another side.

I checked the difference using a green pepper instead of the cabbage and the calories were 4 more with the pepper, and you lose a lot of the Potassium.

I forgot to take a picture until it was almost gone. Will do it next time and revise this.
