HOW DO YOU MAKE PEPPER STEAK STIR FRY?
This dish is a combination of sauteed bell peppers, browned steak and a savory sauce. The recipe starts by cooking the sliced peppers until tender. The next step is to add the thinly sliced flank steak into the pan. The finishing touch is the 2 minute sauce which gets poured over the meat and vegetables and then simmered until thickened. Add a bowl of steamed rice and dinner is ready!
I used red and green bell peppers in my Chinese pepper steak because that’s what I had on hand. However, any color of bell pepper is perfectly fine. Some bell peppers are sweeter than others. Red, yellow and orange peppers are typically sweeter than green peppers. Some pepper steak recipes call for tomatoes or onions, feel free to add those into the mix if you like.
16 oz of beef stew meat.
2 of each bell peppers.
1 vegetable oil.
3 tbsp. Of worcestershire sauce.
1 tsp of minced garlic.
1 can of beef broth.
1 can of stewed tomatoes.
1 season salt.
1 all-purpose flour.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour and season salt then coat the meat in the mixture.
In a skillet, heat the oil, add in the meat, minced garlic, bell peppers (cut into strips) and cook until the meat starts to brown.
Remove the meat and peppers from the skillet to a lined slow cooker leaving the grease behind.
In the skillet where we cooked the meat, add the stewed tomatoes with juice, and 1 can of beef broth to the oil.
Add the flour gradually while stirring until you make a gravy then pour it over the meat in the slow cooker.
Cook cover on low for 8 hours.
