Tangy, complex balsamic vinegar and a touch of salt turn olive oil and sautéed peppers into a great side dish for a hearty entrée like ​sirloin croquettes.


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red bell pepper (seeded and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices)
  • 1 large orange or yellow bell pepper (seeded and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper (ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps to Make It

  1. In a large skillet, stir together the olive oil and peppers over medium heat.

  2. Saute the pepper for 5-7 minutes, until they are tender but still firm.

  3. Stir in the balsamic vinegar, pepper, and salt; cook for an additional 1 minute.

  4. Transfer the peppers and sauce to a dish and serve hot.
