Our family really enjoyed Misty’s recipe for pepper steak www.MealsbyMisty.blogspot.com I love to cook but, I don’t always have time to prepare meals during the week for my family. This recipe is perfect to make during the weekend and serve up fast during the week.
Perfectly Peppered Steak
Note: measurements are approximate and you should adjust to taste
1- 1-1/2lbs beef steak, cut into strips
2-3 bell peppers, any color, cut thinly into strips
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
2-3 cups beef broth
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Salt and pepper
1-15 oz tomatoes any style (e.g. crushed, whole, diced)
A splash of your favorite steak sauce
A splash of your favorite Worcestershire sauce
A big splash of soy sauce
1-2 Tablespoons cooking oil
2-3 tablespoons Cornstarch
Hot cooked rice or noodles
1. Slice uncooked steak into slices across the grain. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
2. In a Dutch oven heat oil and brown meat. Remove meat wth a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate.
3. Toss in sliced red onion and bell peppers. Add garlic and beef broth, steak sacue, Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce, ginger and tomatoes.

If you need to kick-up the spice Misty recommends that you add a few dashes of hot sauce.
Serve over hot rice or noodles.

Velva… This is truly an easy way to have my favorite Chinese without having to do 'take-out'. Great blend of flavors which one can adjust. Many thanks for a perfect quick dinner.

Thanks so much for trying out my recipe! Your looks fantastic. We had it for dinner last night…so tasty! Oh, I am also making my pepper steak for 2 Christmas parties this week, each for around 30 people. I have a lot of peppers to chop! Happy Saturday!
Pepper steak is one of my dad's favorite things- I'vesaved for the next time he visits! Thanks 🙂
I love the ease of this and all the tastes. Grand recipe! Will definitely try this in December.
I can definitely use this, I bought a whole ribeye and a whole strip loin in the past week so I need a lot of tasty beef dishes.
Yumm… pepper steak. We have it here several times a year, maybe more, grins. I add a pinch of sugar to balance out the peppers and the soy sauce, but essentially our recipes are very similar. So good!
This really sounds good. I'm going to make it this week. Thanks for the post.
Throw that in a flour tortilla, and you've got a fajita!

You know I saw this earlier and guess what? I just ate some for dinner, but I did not cook it my good friend Sunny Garden down the road did, and they even delivered it…HA! Yes, you had me wanting it, but I was out working and it began to snow here, so I batted my eyelashes at hubby and he said go out or take out, I sang…\”Baby its cold out side…\”, now for a glass wine!
Yum…Peppers and onions, so tasty and colorful.Mimi
