Pepper Steak 044

This is another recipe that came with my husband.  

When we were first married and my husband mentioned Pepper Steak, my mind went immediately to the Chinese version, but when I got this recipe from his mom, it wasn’t “Chinese” at all.  I was actually quite thankful because I don’t really like bell peppers and never ate them with my Chinese food.  

This recipe has just enough bell peppers to give the dish a nice flavor without overpowering. It does take a good long time to cook and can be done in the crock pot…although I have to be honest, it’s better on the stove top.  It takes a little planning because it needs to cook for at least an hour, but doesn’t require much attention after you get it going….and believe me, it’s worth it!  

It’s served over rice and I usually make green beans as a side.  Biscuits or garlic toast also go great with it.

If Bell Peppers aren’t something you usually keep on hand, try freezing them to use for cooking.

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 1 1/2 lbs round steak
  • 1 clove garlic or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 16 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 medium onion – thinly sliced
  • 1 medium bell pepper – sliced
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pepper to taste

Pepper Steak 002

Slice meat in thin strips about 2″ x 1/4″

Pepper Steak 006

In a large skillet over high to medium high heat add oil and brown meat

Pepper Steak 008

Drain excess fat and add all other ingredients

Pepper Steak 012

Bring to a boil

Reduce heat, cover and simmer at least 1 hour or until meat is tender

Check occasionally to make sure the juice isn’t cooking away (add a little water if necessary)

Can cook much longer as long as the lid stays on and temperature is low

Mine cooked for at least and hour and a half
