Hi, this is Chef Maria Sparks with Cork and Platter, and today I'm going to show you how to saute peppers for French dip. Traditionally, French dip is a sandwich with roast beef, French bread, that's traditionally what you use; you can use hoagie or a hamburger bun. Then, just dip it into the, the au jus or the beef stock, whichever you want to use. Today, we're going to saute peppers to give it a little twist and a little more flavor to the sandwich. So, the first thing we're going to do is we're going to take our pepper and we are going to cut it lengthwise in half and then we're going to cut again in quarters. We're going to take our knife and we're going to peel out the seeds. You can use your hand as well if you want to pull the seeds out. This kind of pepper is not a hot pepper, so it's not going to burn your hands, it's okay to handle them without gloves if you'd like. Then, what we're going to do is we're going to do what's called the julienne cut and that is a matchstick size. It's about size and about that thin. And we're going to slice all four quarters of the peppers in that manner and then, we're going to take a frying pan, we're going to heat up a little bit of oil. I like to use a blend, so it's a blend of, of olive oil and canola oil. And I'm going to toss my peppers in once the oil has got to the temperature about medium high heat. I season it with a little salt and pepper and I watch it the whole time, but I don't stir it a lot. Don't mess with your peppers too much. You want it to get a little bit of a nice caramely outside and if you keep stirring it, that wont' happen to your peppers. It will do what's called wilting the pepper and it will still taste good, but when you caramelize your peppers, it just gives it this amazing flavor. So, I like to build my sandwich by taking my French roll, slicing it open. I take my beef, you can either roast your own beef or if you want it quick and easy, you can just take sliced roast beef from the deli, lay it down. Then, I take my peppers, lay those on top of my steak. I like to put a little of mayonnaise on my sandwich and I serve it with a side of hot au jus.
