Southwest Steak Fettuccine

Applebee's Copycat Recipe

2 top sirloin steaks
1 red pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 cup yellow corn
1/2 pound fettuccine noodles
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil plus a tit bit more to sear steak in
1 cup heavy cream (about 1 half pint carton)
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
mozzarella cheese for topping,
black pepper to taste
red cayenne pepper to taste
cilantro to sprinkle on top

To make the steak:  Chop red pepper and green onion into small pieces.  Saute in small frying pan on low heat while the rest of the meal is cooking. Cut steak into small strips (its a lot easier to do this when its still slightly frozen).  Put in medium frying pan and sprinkle with olive oil, cook over low heat.  Be careful since the steak is cut into strips they will cook fast, low and slow is the way to go here!  Sprinkle steak with black pepper, cayenne pepper, and cilantro to your taste. Boil a pot of water and cook noodles as directed.

For the Alfredo sauce: Melt butter in medium saucepan with olive oil over medium heat. Add the cream, milk, and flour. Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring often.  Add parmesan cheese and simmer for a few more minutes until thick. Dump the red pepper, green onion, and garlic into the Alfredo sauce.  Sprinkle sauce with black pepper and cayenne pepper.

To serve: Cover the plates with noodles, add some sauce, and make a layer of steak, then sprinkle with more.
