Pepper Steak Recipe

I heard, or read, you loud and clear. The people want my Pepper Steak Recipe! Well, here it is…

Bell Peppers are one of my favorite veggies. I love that each color has it’s own flavor. I also enjoy how the colors brighten up a dish.

As far as the steak is concerned, you have many options. I’m using sirloin, but top round, flank, flat iron, or even London broil will work. Just  slice it thinly. Pop it in the freezer 30 mins before slicing to make it easier to slice. But, be sure to allow the beef to come to room temp before stir frying it.
Baking soda. Yes, the orange box. This helps tenderize the beef. It’s a lifesaver if you’re on a budget and are using a cheap cut of steak. It is what’s used at most Chinese restaurants.

Serve it over white rice or Jasmine rice and you’ll have an easy, take out quality dinner made right in your own kitchen!

Happy Cooking,
