    In 1-quart resealable food-storage plastic bag, place flour, salt and pepper. Seal bag; shake until blended. Add beef; seal bag and shake until beef is evenly coated with flour mixture.

Expert Tips

  • Lean cuts of beef (round steak, beef loin and sirloin) are lower in fat and saturated fat than fattier cuts such as rib eye. Less fat and saturated fat is better for heart health.
  • Any variety of frozen mixed vegetables can be substituted for the Italian-blend vegetables.
  • Add Italian breadsticks and a bagged salad for a quick and easy meal.
