“This is a simple dish that has been in our home since I was a child. It's quite simple and perfect for those nights that dinner has to be quick yet filling!The combination of the steak and veggies is tasty .I introduced the dish to my husband and he suggested adding pineapple to the mix. I have made it that way ever since, really completes the dish for an amazing taste!”
