Recipe by Kim Wilson
"A delicious meal, served with boiled white rice, that's easy and made from items that I've already got in my cupboards! My mother clipped this recipe from somewhere and it became a specialty of mine; however, I've been unable to find the original source."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

beef top sirloin steak
vegetable oil, divided
red onion, cut into 1-inch squares
green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch squares
tomatoes, cut into wedges
Made it without marinading...just threw everything together after browning the steak strips in the oil. I doubled all the other ingredients and completely forgot to add the tomatoes. (the main reason I chose this recipe) Still Delicious! Oh, I did use fresh ginger that I was trying to use up instead of ground.
With everything that is wrong with this dish by including tomatoes, it did work, and got my Okey dokey as being "Just OK".
This recipe immediately went into my recipe box! Will definitely make it again. My dinner plans changed so the meat marinated for 24+ hours and was very delicious - I would recommend marinating at least a few hours or overnight. I only used red & yellow bell pepper and green onions because I had no fresh tomato. Added garlic and crushed red pepper for extra kick.
This was the best pepper steak recipe I've tried! I gave 4 stars though because I added garlic and didn't use tomatoes, but that's just a personal preference for me.
This is a great base recipe. I had 1 1/2# of beef so I doubles the sauce, and I was glad I did to have plenty. I omitted tomatoes (didn't have any). Used fresh ginger.. the balance is pretty could in this recipe but at the end it needed a tweak. I added garlic.. 2 cloves... 2 tbls. of oyster sauce.. yumm.. would definitely use recipe again with these modifications.. thanks
Looking over the recipe I noticed I was to add a lot more sugar (sweetness) than I knew I’d like, so I reduced it significantly, probably by more than half. Also, I sliced the meat considerably thinner than the 1/2” the recipe directed. (Freezing the meat briefly, 20-30 minutes, makes this much easier. As for the preparation, I did that a little differently. I cooked the meat first, set it aside, and then cooked the onions and red, yellow and green peppers, combining it all at the end. I certainly didn’t want to take a chance of overcooking the meat. We did enjoy this, but I think it would benefit by the addition of garlic and, in my opinion, by the omission of the tomatoes. What I particularly liked about this dish was its flexibility (add or use any meat and stir-fry appropriate vegetables you like), the fact that we generally have the ingredients readily at hand to prepare it, and that it’s nutritionally sound.
If my picky eater hubby loves this and swears by it, it's super tastey and super flavorlisious!!! (sp?? LOL) This will be dinner again, very soon, and quite often. Easy to make, simple ingredients, and loved by every bit!!
This is great the way it is. I wish people would review the recipe not add there own sweet and sour version of it. Add a new recipe with your sweet and sour version. I think it inappropriate to add in the comments.
Thanks for your original recipe Mrs Wilson.
