This Green Pepper Steak is so quick meaty stir fry using steak, tomatoes and peppers then flavored with garlic, soy sauce and ginger.
This dish is easily created beforehand, which is excellent for entertaining. I suggest undercooking the veggies a bit so they will be absolutely crisp-tender when rewarmed. Do not include the tomatoes till the dish is warm and you are ready to serve.
I used around steak more frequently, which can be somewhat more affordable than sirloin. Flank steak is also a remarkably popular cut for pepper steak. You’ve got several excellent options and just require 1 lb.
Tips for making great pepper steak:
- Make the rice before, beacuse rice takes longer to cook than the beef!
- All ingredients prepped. Like many stir-fry recipes, it does not take long to make this dish on the dining table.
- Slice the steak very thin, to make this a bit easier, place the steak in the freezer for half an hour before slicing. It firms up enough to slice easily.
- Make sure you marinate the steak for at least half an hour or up to 4hours. This is the very first thing that I do, then begin the ricethen prep the veggies. Don’t overcook the veggies.
- Use regular soy sauce, doesn’t low sodium for the best taste. Except for this particular dish. The flavour can taste watered down, in my opinion.
