Wild West Steak

Makes: 4 servings

Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, divided
  • 1 Spanish onion, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons coarse-grained mustard
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 4-ounce bison or beef tenderloin steaks, about 1 inch thick, trimmed


  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and cook until the onion is golden, about 10 minutes more. (If the mixture becomes too dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.)
  3. Whisk mustard with water in a small bowl. Add to the onion mixture and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; keep warm.
  4. Brush steaks lightly with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and season to taste with salt and a generous grinding of pepper. Grill the steaks to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve with the onion-pepper mixture.
