Make It

Marinade:

2. Place steak in a large resealable plastic bag; add half of the marinade; reserve remaining half. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

3. Heat broiler. In a medium-size skillet, cook beans and 1/2 cup water, covered, over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Remove cover, add peppers and cook for 5 minutes or until water cooks off.
