Method

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add anchovies and garlic and heat together until anchovies dissolve and garlic begins to brown, about 3 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low Add bell peppers and cook, stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking, until peppers wilt and caramelize, for about an hour.

Add capers and olives about three quarters of the way through the cooking process.

Once peppers are caramelized, soft and wilted, add red wine vinegar and black pepper.

Toss and allow vinegar to evaporate, 1 to 2 minutes, then remove from heat.

Let cool to room temperature before serving.
