Pepper Steak

This recipe should be in everyone’s repertoire! It’s so easy, and I really don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a good old Pepper Steak. This recipe comes without onions, but of course feel free to add them to your dish. (You should add them at the same time you add the peppers ad green onions) I just polished off two plates, and it its simply scrumptious!


What you’ll need

  • 1 1/2 pounds of beef chuck or round steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2. tsp ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup Canola oil
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper, all cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 (15oz) can diced tomatoes



Combine oil, soy sauce, garlic, paprika, and ginger. Add the beef strips and let it marinade at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Then brown in a skillet for 15 – 20 minutes, then remove from the skillet and set aside. Add the peppers and green onions and cook for 10 minutes. Add the beef back to the pan.


Mix the cornstarch with the water, then add it to the meat and vegetables. Cook and stir until slightly thickened. Add the tomatoes and salt and pepper (if needed). Reheat and serve over white rice.

Bon Apetit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
