This Columbia Restaurant inspired recipe is exactly what you need to impress your next date or dinner party! This dish bursts with flavor from the multi-colored peppers, onions, mushrooms, chorizo, and garlic Filet.
Do you have to use a tenderloin filet beef cut?
The traditional entrée is made with the Rolls Royce of beef and will taste best with this cut. This dish will also taste great with other cuts of beef such as a New York Strip or Sirlion. Avoid tougher cuts of beef such as chuck, round, brisket, or flank for this recipe as this cooking method does not tenderize the meat.
Does it have to be beef?
Nope! Feel free to swap the beef for chicken, pork, or even shrimp!
This dish is great as it doesn’t dirty many pans! I know it looks a bit crowded in there but this is the FINAL step before serving and is important as it gets all of the flavors melding together.
I see some potatoes there… are you sure this is diabetic friendly?
Yup! Those are potatoes. And this is STILL diabetic friendly. Its all about portion here :-) If you are worried about those starchy spuds, I encourage you to test your blood glucose before and after eating. Its all about finding out what works best for you!
This entrée traditionally calls for fried potatoes. To lighten up the dish we use baked potatoes and lightly saute them in the pan.
