Code:
local list_of_items = {
  "Red Apple",
  "Orange Carrot",
  "Red Pepper"
}

local string_to_find = "Red"
local new_list = {}
for i, v in ipairs(list_of_items) do
  if v:find(string_to_find) then
    table.insert(new_list, v)
  end
end

print("Found:")
for i, v in ipairs(new_list) do
  print("  "..v)
end
