BBQ Beef & Vegetable Stir-Fry

This was a spur-of-the-moment experiment when we wanted something nice and filling, but also easy. I had steak, peppers and onion on hand, and this is what my mind created. We make it often. For something different, try it in tortillas for fajitas. —Rochelle M. Dickson, Potwin, Kansas

    Very much like the recipe I use, except I use all green peppers. I don't like the sweeter red peppers. Great, quick meal!!

    We had this tonight for dinner and it was delicious. I did use red and yellow peppers because this is what we like. Delish.

    Great quick stir fry with minimal chopping. The BBQ flavor was very subtle. Definitely a keeper for nights when something quick is needed.
