Pepper Steak is a quick and easy dinner idea. I like to use sirloin steak, which will be nice and tender when used with this recipe. You can use one colour of bell pepper or a variety like I did. I also like it to have a bit of a kick but not too spicy. You can make it as spicy as you want. Just add more pepper sauce. Serve it on a bed of rice with a side salad and you’ll have a delicious meal.
1 lb beef top round steak, cut 1 inch thick
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup beef broth
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 can chopped tomato, drained or 2 medium tomatoes blanched, peeled and cut into wedges
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1. Slice the beef into 3 inch strips 1/4 inch wide.
