Pops Pepper Steak
Why I Love This Recipe
This is the real deal. Pop was a Filipino. He was a cook on the merchant marines. Then became a chef for many big time hotels in NYC as in Waldorf, four seasons and several others. We would walk in the house and your mouth would just water and you would open the pot and low and behold there would be fish heads bobbing. He made the best adobe EVER I never got his recipe before he passed. However I did get his pepper steak step by step. Pop was married to my moms best friend. There is no quanitiy just judge how many onion and peppers you like. Usuall one flank steak
