Heart Healthy Recipe
I know tenderloin is considered the best cut of beef, but I love sirloin.  I think it has a better flavor.

Steak & Beans
1 lb. lean boneles top sirloin steak
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
Vegetable cooking spray
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 cloves garlic (I don't use garlic)
1/2 cup canned no-salt-added beef broth
3 T brown sugar
1 (15-oz) can no salt added pinto beans, drained
1 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes

Trim fat and cut steak into 4 pieces.  Combine cumin and chili powder, and sprinkle half of it over beef.  Spray a nonstick skillet with vegetable spray and heat over medium heat.  Add meat and cook 5 minutes on each side.  Remove from the skillet and set aside.  Place onion, green pepper and garlic (if used) in the nonstick skillet.  Saute until tender.  Add the remaining cumin spice mixture, broth, brown sugar, and beans.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Stir in tomato.  Arrange the meat over the bean mixture.  Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
