  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 large bell peppers I used red, green and yellow
  • 1/2 large red onion or one medium onion
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  1. Slice the onions into strips.

  2. Cut the bell peppers in half, remove the core and cut into strips.

  3. Set a skillet on medium heat. Place butter into the skillet and let it melt.

  4. Add the sliced onions and minced garlic. Cook while stirring from time to time until the onions wilt. About 2 minutes.

  5. Add the strips of pepper and gently toss around. Let it cook to desired doneness while moving them around every now and then.

    I cook the peppers for about 5 minutes. They still have some crunch at the end of this time.

  6. Sprinkle salt and ground black pepper to taste over the peppers. Toss to combine.

  7. Serve with your favorite main dishes. I served mine with some baked salmon and some white rice. It was divine!
