Pepper Steak

Our Delightful Home

This is not a traditional pepper steak.  I was in the mood for a stir fry, but I wanted a nice Asian inspired sauce too.  I guess this is would be a pepper steak, but you could really use any vegetable combination you like.  I can't wait to try this with some broccoli, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts!  Omit or add whatever you like!  I think just about anything would go great with this sauce!

Pepper Steak
1 1/2 lbs flank steak, sliced thin
2 TBS vegetable oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 green pepper, seeded and sliced thin
1 red pepper, seeded and sliced thin
1/2 white onion, sliced thin
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup dry sherry
1/2 cup beef broth
2 TBS oyster sauce
2 TBS sweet red chili sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
2 TBS cornstarch mixed with about 1/4 cup cold water

  • Heat 1 TBS vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat
  • Stir fry beef and garlic until no longer brown, about 2-3 minutes
  • Drain beef, set aside, and clean wok if necessary
  • Heat remaining vegetable oil in the same pan and stir fry vegetables until crisp tender, about 2-3 minutes
  • In a small bowl mix together ginger, soy sauce, sherry, broth, oyster sauce, and chili sauce
  • Add sauce mixture to vegetables and reduce heat to medium-high
  • Add beef back to pan and heat until bubbly
  • Add cornstarch and water mixture and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes
  • Remove from heat, add sesame oil, mix well, and serve over rice
This turned out really good!  I am happy I decided to play with making a sauce.  Everyone gobbled it up and there was just enough for my husband to take for his lunch.  Definitely a great meal that takes minimal time and effort to prepare!
