  6. Add steak, onions and peppers back to the skillet. Top with cheese. Place in oven for 5 minutes turn oven to broil and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and lightly browned.

Notes

I like to marinate my steak with a little red wine vinegar, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce for a few hours before making this. Cover the handle of the skillet before placing in oven if is not oven proof. Be careful adding Brandy over open flame as alcohol is flammable.
