  • 4 (4 oz.) eye of round steaks, trimmed
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 chipotle pepper packed in adobo sauce, seeded and minced
  • 1 (10 oz.) can condensed beef broth or beef consommé
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Step by Step:

  1. Prepare indoor or outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Spray steaks with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Place on grill grate and cook, 3 minutes per side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from grill and let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet sprayed with cooking spray, sauté onion and bell pepper over medium-high heat, 5 minutes or until tender. Add 1/2 of the minced chipotle pepper and cook 1 minute. Stir in consommé and bring to a simmer. If more heat is desired, stir in remaining chipotle pepper.
  3. Stir together soy sauce and cornstarch and add to onion mixture, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute or until sauce is thickened. Serve sauce over steaks. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Campbell's Condensed Beef Consommé.
