Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Trim excess fat from beef. Cut beef into 2x1/4-inch strips. (Beef is easier to cut if partially frozen, about 1 hour.)
  • 2
    Heat oil in wok or 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef in oil about 5 minutes, turning frequently, until brown.
  • 3
    Stir in water, onion, garlic and gingerroot. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes for round steak, 5 to 8 minutes for sirloin steak, adding bell peppers during last 5 minutes of simmering, until beef is tender and peppers are crisp-tender.
  • 4
    Mix cornstarch, sugar and soy sauce; stir into beef mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  • 5
    Cut each tomato into 8 wedges and place on beef mixture. Cover and cook over low heat about 3 minutes or just until tomatoes are heated through. Serve with rice.

Expert Tips

For a change of pace, try buttered noodles instead of rice. Cook and drain egg noodles as directed on package, then toss with a little butter or margarine and grated Parmesan cheese.

For those who like it hot, make sure you have crushed red pepper on hand to sprinkle on each serving!
