    2.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the peppers and season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes or until the peppers are soft and tender, remove from skillet to a plate.
    3. Return the skillet to high heat and add the remaining oil. Add the steak and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes.

Add the butter and garlic, toss to coat and cook until the garlic is fragrant and caramelized, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice.
    4. Serve the beef and peppers over rice. Top with avocado and fresh herbs. Enjoy!

RECIPE NOTES

*Beef tenderloin is going to be more tender, but if it's too pricey, flank steak works well too
