Best Loved Pepper Steak Recipe

I usually use a sirloin steak for this Pepper Steak Recipe. It’s a less expensive cut than tenderloin and seems to work well for this recipe.

If you want an even less expensive cut of beef, you can use a round steak in place of the sirloin, or a flank steak, for that matter.

Serve with a crisp tossed salad and some herbed tea biscuits and you’ve got a delicious meal. Pepper steak is easy to make and is good for serving a crowd as well.

Best Loved Pepper Steak Recipe

1 1/2 lbs. sirloin or round steak
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. Olive oil
1 cup diced onion
2 green peppers, thinly sliced
2 red peppers, thinly sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup red wine
3 tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 cup cold water
2 tbsp. cornstarch
2 tomatoes, cut into eighths

Method

Cut meat into bite-size pieces. Sprinkle with salt. In a large frying pan brown the meat on all sides. Add the onion, peppers and garlic and cook for about 10 minutes. Add the beef broth, red wine and soy sauce and cook for another 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix water and cornstarch until smooth. Bring the meat mixture to a slow boil. Gradually add the cornstarch mixture to the meat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly. Simmer gently for about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and heat through. Makes 6 servings.
