Hearty and full of flavor. Latino cooks make this with thin steak, which you can use instead of cube steak in this recipe, if desired

1 tsp salt, divided
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
4 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 large onions, sliced into rings
1 medium green bell pepper, sliced into rings
1 medium red bell pepper, sliced into rings
3 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 tsp chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
1/2 tsp oregano, divided
1/2 cup low-fat beef broth
1/2 cup white wine

1.Season meat with 1/2 tsp salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Place a layer of meat in the skillet. On top of the meat, layer potatoes, onion, peppers, tomato, garlic, and parsley or cilantro. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp each oregano and salt.
2.Place another layer of meat in the skillet and repeat the layering of the other ingredients. Sprinkle with remaining oregano and salt.

According to the CDC Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents; about 151,000 people below the age of 20 years have diabetes. When diabetes strikes during childhood, it is routinely assumed to be type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes. However, in the last 2 decades, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes) has been reported among U.S. children and adolescents with increasing frequency.
