Description

This easy pepper steak stir-fry is full of great flavor!


Ingredients

Scale

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. corn starch
  • 1/8 tsp. coarsely-ground black pepper (or more/less to taste)

Pepper Steak Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. thinly sliced flank steak or sirloin, cut diagonally across the grain into thin strips
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 12 mini sweet peppers, thinly sliced (or 2 regular-sized bell peppers, thinly sliced)
  • 2 scallions, sliced diagonally into 1 inch pieces, white and green pieces separated
  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

Instructions

To Make The Marinade:

  1. Add all marinade ingredients to a large bowl or ziplock bag, and stir to combine. Add the sliced steak, and toss in the marinade. Cover/seal and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

To Make The Pepper Steak:

  1. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the sweet peppers and white part of the scallions, ginger, garlic, and saute for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to the saute pan. Remove half the steak from the marinade with a slotted spoon (reserving the marinade) and saute about 2-3 minutes until browned, stirring occasionally. Transfer steak to plate with the veggies. Saute the remaining steak, then transfer to plate.
  3. Add the reserved marinade to the skillet and cook for 1 minute or until thickened. Add the steak, veggies and green parts of the scallions to the skillet, and stir to combine. Cook for an additional minute, then remove from heat.
  4. Serve immediately over rice or quinoa.

  1. Was so easy & delicious & colorful. Wish I had this years ago! I actually messed up what went in the pan at what point, yet it turned out perfectly fine. Took exactly 30 minutes from start to finish.

  2. Excellent recipe! I only had lean ground beef on hand so I skipped marinating the beef strips and used the marinade as the sauce. Cooked everything as per written above and added the marinade at the end. Allowed all ingredients to cook a few minutes so that marinade thickened up into a nice sauce. DELISH!

  3. Made this recipe exactly as written and it tasted really good just like Chinese pepper steak

  4. Wow! This was fantastic ! Super fast. Tastes delicious! Used sirloin steak, celery and Jalepeno balsamic because it was what I had on hand. Soooo Yum! Super important to follow cooking times to a tee. Veggies were crisp tender and steak was tender. Thank you this is a keeper!
