Seared flank steak seasoned with chili powder, smoked paprika, cayenne, cumin, garlic, and onion powder tossed with bell peppers. Flank steak is also known as London Broil. It's a low-cost, all-purpose cut of beef. Take into consideration that flank steak is a very lean cut of beef.

Remove the steak from the pan. Place the steak into a dish or plate lined with a paper towel to drain. 
Return the pan to the heat, add the remainder of the oil and add the peppers to the pan. 
Sauté the peppers for 2 minutes allowing them to soften.
