Pepper Steak

Indulge in the tasty magic of Pepper Steak – a delicious dish that’s like a flavor celebration in your mouth! In just 30 minutes, you’ll be savoring this delightful blend of sweet and savory goodness. Forget waiting for the delivery person; you can whip up this triumph of efficiency in your own kitchen!

Start by slicing up some flank steak – about 1.5 pounds of it. Imagine the thin, juicy slices soaking up a special marinade made of soy sauce, oyster sauce, cornstarch, and a hint of sugar. Let it mingle for at least 10 minutes while you prepare the rest.

Time to create the secret sauce! Whisk together beef broth and black pepper – this combo is the key to the velvety cloak that’ll wrap around your steak and veggies.

Now, heat up your trusty wok or skillet with a bit of vegetable oil. Toss in the marinated steak and watch it sizzle until it’s beautifully browned. Set it aside for a moment.

In the same sizzling pan, toss in sliced onions, bell peppers, garlic, and ginger. Give them a quick stir until they’re tender-crisp. It’s like a veggie party in there!

Bring back the steak to join the veggie bash, and pour that special sauce all over them. Let it simmer and thicken – that’s when the real magic happens.

Sprinkle some green onions on top, and serve this enchanting Pepper Steak over a bed of fluffy white rice. Each bite is a journey through sweet, savory, and pepper-packed perfection. It’s not just a dish; it’s a tasty rebellion against the idea that good food takes forever. You’ll be amazed at how quick, easy, and incredibly delicious this Pepper Steak adventure can be!
