Pepper Steak Gravy over Garlic Potatoes
Green peppers are usually the thriftiest peppers you can buy- almost always less expensive than red or yellow. They are the perfect partner to the rich beef flavor this recipe provides, and a fine contrast to creamy mashed potatoes, too!
Serves 4

8 ounces extra-lean ground sirloin beef or turkey breast
1-1/2 cups chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (2-ounce) jar chopped pimiento, drained
1 (12-ounce) can Heinz Fat Free Beef Gravy
1-2/3 cups hot water
1-1/3 cups instant potato flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic
1/4 cup Land 0 Lakes no-fat sour cream

In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat, green pepper, and onion. Stir in pimiento and beef gravy. Lower heat and simmer while preparing potatoes, stirring occasionally in a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Remove from heat and add potato flakes and garlic. Mix gently to combine, using a fork. Stir in sour cream. For each serving, place about 1/2 cup potatoes on a plate and spoon a full 1/2 cup meat gravy over top.

Each serving equals:
