Put down the take out menu and make this easy Asian Pepper Steak recipe with beef, bell peppers and onion.
Did you know that many of our favorite take-out meals can easily (and quickly) be made at home? This pepper steak recipe is a great example. It only takes minutes to prep and less than 15 minutes to cook. Plus, since it won’t see one of those take out containers, it’s fresh.
To make pepper steak at home, you will first need to cut beef sirloin into thin strips. This makes sure the cooking goes quickly and the beef is tender when cooked.
Toss the beef strips in a little flour, salt and pepper. The flour makes sure that when we throw the beef into a hot pan, it will brown nicely and be extra flavorful.
Then, cook the beef until browned. Take it out then cook some sliced bell peppers and onions.
Add the beef back into the pan along with a little garlic then add the sauce, which is made up of soy sauce, sugar and a little toasted sesame oil.
Finally, for an extra pop of freshness, add a handful of halved cherry tomatoes.
That’s it. Serve over rice and enjoy!
