And whether you like veggie fajita salads, steak burrito bowls, or a fully loaded burrito, they all have one thing in common - grilled peppers and onions! And to get that perfectly charred flavor with no grill, all you need is super high heat, a shorter cooking time, and uncovered food. The high heat chars the food surface; the shorter cooking time just comes naturally because the food cooks faster over high heat. And most importantly? Don't cover the food while it cooks. The onions and peppers release moisture in the form of steam when cooking, so if the vegies are covered, you'll end up with soft steamed vegies. Stir with a wooden spoon frequently to keep things cooking evenly. And as they char, they turn a delicious golden brown and have the most wonderful caramelized flavor! Tender and sweet - just the way we love them!
We make this like crazy when the fresh Vidalia onions arrive in the spring, but they work just as well with red onions. Add some sweet green bell peppers, olive oil, FRESH oregano and a sprinkle of salt, and you're good to go!
