Meditations on Deep Fry - Steak and Cheese Stuffed Peppers
I swear that I'm not as fat as this blog makes you think I am. Well, onto the deep frying.
This recipe was the result of a conflict between my stomach and my wallet. Old bargain steak that seemed like it wouldn't be appetizing coming off of a grill, canned flavorless green peppers, and a bag of shredded "Mexican" cheese came together in this recipe to prove that nearly anything can be battered, fried and made delicious.
2 cans whole green peppers
1 lb. Steak
8 oz. Shredded cheese
2 cups cornmeal
1 teaspoon corn starch
1/4 cup flour
2 cups ale
1. Cut defrosted uncooked steak into very small pieces
2. Toss steak with cheese and hot sauce to taste.
3. Stuff steak and cheese mixture into drained individual peppers. It's fine if peppers split open.
4. Begin heating oil to 375
5. Combine flour, corn starch and 1/2 cup corn meal. Place 1 and 1/2 cups corn meal in a separate bowl.
6. Add ale to dry mixture and stir until you have a very thin batter.
7. Coat stuffed peppers in batter and then coat with corn meal.
8. When oil reaches 375 degrees, add stuffed peppers and fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Cut one open to check if steak is cooked through and enjoy.
