Celebrate The Cowboy with a Western Style Recipe

There is a theme that has been going on in fashion, home decor and lifestyle for a while now. The style of the rustic life of the cowboy has been raising a lots of dust. The American cowboy and the old west in the U.S. when the country was still quite young. It's hard to imagine that the United States has only been around since the 1700's. It seems much longer than that. 
The last Saturday in July is the day of the Cowboy. It is a day that honors the cowboy and his and her way of life. Yes, I said her as I think just like everything else there are women out there on the range working side by side to keep up the lifestyle that so many have left behind. 
Take some time out of your busy schedule and visit a rodeo, re-enactment, eat some cowboy food or do one of the many activities out there that honors the cowboy. I thought I might offer you a great western cowboy style recipe to help you start the meal off right. 

1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Pure Wesson® Vegetable Oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon Gebhardt® Chili Powder
1 can (15 oz each) Ranch Style® Beans, undrained
1 can (14.5 oz each) Hunt's® Diced Tomatoes, undrained
1 can (10 oz each) Ro*Tel® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
1 can (6 oz each) Hunt's® Tomato Paste
1 cup water
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
Sliced green onions, sour cream, shredded Cheddar cheese and crushed corn chips, optional

Sprinkle steak pieces evenly with salt and pepper. Heat oil in 6-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add steak, onion, garlic and chili powder. Cook 5 minutes or until steak is browned on all sides and onion is tender, stirring frequently.
Add beans, both undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, water, sugar and red pepper; blend well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with optional toppings, if desired.
For a variation, add a chopped red, yellow or green bell pepper after steak is browned. Cook and stir until crisp-tender. Add remaining ingredients and finish as described in recipe. May replace the can of tomato paste and 1 cup of water with 1 can (15 oz) Hunt's Tomato Sauce.
