Directions

  1. Slice the steak into 1/2-inch thick slices across the grain.
  2. Whisk together soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, and ginger in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth. Place the steak slices into the marinade, and stir until well-coated.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat, and place 1/3 of the steak strips into the hot oil. Cook and stir until the beef is well-browned, about 3 minutes, and remove the beef from the wok to a bowl. Repeat twice more, with the remaining beef, and set the cooked beef aside.
  4. Return all the cooked beef to the hot wok, and stir in the onion. Toss the beef and onion together until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes, then stir in the green pepper. Cook and stir the mixture until the pepper has turned bright green and started to become tender, about 2 minutes, then add the tomatoes, stir everything together, and serve.

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 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 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 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

This was really good. I doubled the sauce for 1-1/2 pounds of steak. Added about 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Also added 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper near the end f the cooking time. Used red & yellow bell pepper instead of green. Did not use tomatoes.
