Good with grilled steak. Serve over cooked rice, or you can also heat a can of black beans in a saucepan, drain, and serve with the peppers over rice.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or to taste
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 sweet onion (such as Vidalia®), thinly sliced
  • 1 (8 ounce) package assorted sliced mushrooms, or to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 pinches cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute bell pepper and sweet onion in hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir mushrooms and garlic into the pepper mixture; cook until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. 2 Stir Worcestershire sauce, parsley, ketchup, basil, turmeric, red pepper flakes, cumin, and cayenne pepper into the pepper mixture. Place cover on the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until mixture thickens, 20 to 30 minutes. If mixture is too dry, add water and stir.

  1. Delicious. The flavors are amazing. A little too spicy for me though, I cut the red pepper in half and still too hot. Think I will skip it altogether next time.
  2. Very good and different sauce. Used less oil and cooked less time to keep vegetables more crisp tender. Yummy.
  3. I made this with a few adjustments. I used one each of red green yellow and orange bell pepper. I omitted the cayenne and used coriander instead of cumin. It was just the right amount of spicy and I put this on top of baked tilapia. It was delicious!
  4. This was easy to put together. I didn't use Worcestershire Sauce but used white wine instead. I would have used red wine if I had any. I did add the black beans and served it on rice. I also used fewer red pepper flakes.
  5. Yummy. I did not add any cayenne and halved the pepper flakes. I was worried it might scare off the family if it was too spicy and a whole teaspoon of pepper flakes is a lot! Turned out really spicy anyway and I like spice so be warned! I also used fresh parsley and basil - Read more ...
  6. This is full of flavor and is very versatile in its use--as stated by the submitter. I put some of my leftovers on a turkey sandwich that I had for lunch and it was great! Thank you brenda!
