Pepper Steak

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.

Ingredients:
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
Onion powder
Garlic powder
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

Directions:
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.
4. In a small dish, Use 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with beef broth. Stir until dissolved. Add to simmering pot, to thicken the sauce. Cover and simmer 25-30 minutes.

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.

Katy said...

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!

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!

Mimi said...

Yum...Peppers and onions, so tasty and colorful.
