Pepper Steak

Pepper steak, also called green pepper steak, is a stir-fried Chinese American dish consisting of sliced beef steak (often flank, sirloin, or round) cooked with sliced green and/or red bell peppers and other seasonings such as soy sauce and ginger, and usually thickened with cornstarch. Sliced onions and bean sprouts are also frequent additions to the recipe.

There are many variations of pepper steaks that might be cooked depending on which vegetables are added to the meat. The one below is my favorite.


3 cups hot cooked rice

1 pound beef round steak
1 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp butter

2 cloves of garlic (Optional)
1 1/2 cups beef broth (2 beef stock cubes.)

2 large fresh tomatoes cut into eighths.

Transfer them to a large bowl and keep warm.

Cut meat into small pepper steak sized strips.
Sprinkle the meat with the paprika then rub it in by hand

In a pan or skillet brown the meat in butter.
