Expert Tips
  1. Cook the steak in batches (unless using leftovers) to help with browning.
  2. Cover and cook the peppers for the recommended time to make sure they are soft and tender.
  3. If you don't have 2 types of cheese, just use what you have and it will be fine. You can try monterey jack, cheddar, mozzarella.
  4. This recipe is great reheated. Make extra for later!
