5 from 6 reviews


  • 1.5 (ish) pound flank steak
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 green bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 810 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise


  1. Bring 1 1/4 cups of water to a boil in a small pot
  2. When the water is boiling, add 1 tablespoon of butter, a little salt, and 1/2 cup brown rice
  3. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer
  4. Simmer for 45 minutes
  5. When there is about 25 minutes left on your rice, season your flank steak with the salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper
  6. Cook your steak until it is medium rare (we grilled ours, but you can cook it anyway you want – broiled, on a grill pan inside, etc…)
  7. Let the steak rest for about five minutes, and then slice it thinly at an angle against the grain
  8. Chop the slices up into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl
  9. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
  10. Meanwhile, slice the tops off the green peppers and remove the seeds and ribs so you are left with four empty peppers
  11. If any of the peppers wont stand up right, you may need to slice off a small bit from the bottom to make it even
  12. Heat a large saute pan over medium high heat with a little olive oil
  13. Add your onions along with a little salt and pepper and saute until golden brown and translucent
  14. Remove the onions to the same bowl as the steak
  15. When the rice is done cooking, drain it using a sieve to remove any extra water – press down against the rice with the back of the spoon to get all the moisture out that you can
  16. Add the rice into the bowl with the steak and onions
  17. Break your provolone cheese up into pieces and add it to the steak mixture
  18. Stir in the mayonnaise
  19. If your mixture has cooled down and isn’t warm enough to melt the cheese, add everything back into the saute pan used to cook the onions
  20. Warm the mixture over high heat for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and everything is evenly combined
  21. Taste and season if needed
  22. Add the four peppers into a baking dish and spoon the mixture into them
  23. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes
