A few weeks ago I wrote about how my husband’s new grill got to move into our new apartment before we did. I believe that it was Mary who sagely advised me to leave him to it. Well, Mary, it was good advice and I have been benefiting from the proceeds ever since.
And when this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe popped up, Piperade Stir Fry (aka, sautéed bell peppers), I thought that it sounded like the perfect side for grilled steak. I knew going in, however, that my husband doesn’t think that bell peppers are good for much of anything. But he willingly ate Dorie’s chicken with piperade a few years ago, so maybe this one stood a chance after all.
What can I say? I thought that the dish was okay and my husband is as confirmed as ever in his distaste for bell peppers. It sure was pretty though and I may try it again with a different assortment of sweet and spicy peppers.
Hope that my fellow Doristas in the northern hemisphere are finally enjoying some grilling weather.
I am with your husband on the bell peppers; fortunately, the rest of my family sees it differently.
Hope the settling in is going well!
I skipped this because I can’t eat peppers – but the rest of your meal looks just delicious! We’ll be having grilled steak and corn tonight, too!
Your grilled meal looks delicious.
Well, I have to say that your peppers look delicious. I think you’re on the right track with different peppers too. Something sweeter, something spicier sounds terrific!

I’m glad I didn’t have the only hubby who snubbed these…but at least yours took a taste!
The peppers may have been only okay, but the bowl you served them in is gorgeous. I ended up cooking the onion, garlic, and chile – it suited us better and I liked the dish a lot.
I like the idea of adding some spicy peppers to the mix. This was a little boring. I’m jealous of your grilled corn. I can’t wait until it’s corn season here!
The steak looks delicious. I was prepared to not like this Pipérade but it worked on Sea Bass which is a fleshy white fish. I served this combo at a dinner party and everyone seemed to like it. Plus, it was easy and pretty. Since I’m an Iowa girl with a farm background, I’ve always felt a good piece of beef (like your steak) can stand on its own without fussy toppings or sauces. As an Iowa girl, I also think corn-on-the-cob was the perfect side.
