  • 1
    Remove fat from beef. Cut beef into 2x1/4-inch strips. (Beef is easier to cut if partially frozen, 30 to 60 minutes.)
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, heat oil 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. 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
    In small bowl, mix cornstarch, sugar and soy sauce; stir into beef mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; reduce heat to low.
  • 5
    Cut each tomato into 8 wedges; place on beef mixture. Cover and cook over low heat about 3 minutes or just until tomatoes are heated through. Serve with rice.
