Pepper Steak over Rice

This is another dish inspired by food I've had in Chinese restaurants. It's very similar to the Beef with Broccoli that I make, and it's just as easy.

- 1 pound lean steak sliced into thin strips
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 red pepper cut into strips
- 1/2 green pepper cut into strips
- 1/2 yellow onion cut into strips
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed
- 1 package dry gravy mix, mixed with 1 c cold water

- Marinate your steak in the soy sauce and Worcestershire for a few hours. If you don't have time to marinate, just add these sauces when cooking.
- Add steak to a hot saute pan. Cook about halfway draining some of the excess fat.
- Add the garlic (pressed), red and green peppers, onions, and red pepper flakes. Cover and let cook for about 3-4 minutes over medium heat.
- Add the gravy, stir, cover, and let simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce thickens.
- Serve over rice.

This dinner takes about 25 minutes to cook, about 35 minutes including prep time.

  1. That looks like an easy but tasty recipe. I might have to make that soon!

  2. Looks wonderful! I always love how colorful and flavorful Asian food is. :)

  3. This is very similar to my recipe and I agree it's much better if you have time to marinate the beef. The only real difference is I just make a "slurry" of cornstarch and water and use that to thicken. Love your recipes!
