Easy Pepper Steak
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 55 min.
Good weeknight meal. Venison also worked well for my family. I added a touch of ginger and i used the Better than Bouillon for beef broth.
I did make a couple of changes. First I doubled the recipe because I was feeding the kids and grandkids too! I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce because we don't do soy (and coconut aminos tastes better anyway!), and I used green and yellow peppers because that's what I had! I really expected the grandkids (ages 1 and a half to 9) to not want it and that I would have leftovers, but nope! They all loved it and there were NO leftovers!!! Definitely will be making this again!!!
Very god recipe. Made as written.. A keeper in our house. Maybe Andrea needs to learn how to cook?
Turned out great, an easy favorite around our house... Please keep comments on topic and be civil to others, its a recipe for pepper steak, not psychology 101 or a police interrogation!
This is a keeper. Wish people wdnt change the recipe then say they didn't like it lol. Dont use tenderloin for this recipe ... use top round as the recipe stated. Ive been making some variation of this for over 50 years, and ive never had ANYONE including small children not clean their plates. Its not rocket science, it's Pepper Steak!
So here is my tweak. Step 2 eliminated, I added brown gravy as I don't like soy sauce , etc. Turned out great. The butter adds flavor, nice touch. Also I poured off excess juice when it finished browning,as I added the beef broth.
I'm so confused by the reviews that say "it worth 5 star" and "it's SO easy..." but then leave 0 star. Seems fishy to me, touching the star rating is the easy part if you're capable of logging in. And I agree with John - Andrea, you wouldn't cook a good cut of steak in liquid for 30 mins, much less cut into strips. If you didn't realize that, this recipe is probably above your paygrade. This is a simple reliable pepper steak recipe. It's not complicated or expensive. If it doesn't come out right it means the meat was sub-par (which I doubt, you could make this with chicken or pork and it would taste good) your ingredients were off OR you aren't good at following direction. If your kids are a fan of pepper steak and you make it all the time, then why are you searching the internet for a pepper steak recipe? Also, just my opinion - but if you change the first ingredient (hmmhm-barbsbasic) you can't claim to have "followed the recipe to the T". Hello!! Cube steak is basically ground beef, you're going to get way too much water/liquid rendered from browning it. Why didn't you strain the excess liquid from the an before you went to step 2 if you changed the ingredient in step one, don't blame the recipe - you didn't follow it to the T. Lovely recipe Carolyn!... Thank you!! I did use 2 beef bullion cubes and a cup of water instead of a can of broth, I also followed your advice and tenderized the meat, but also added salt, pepper
I followed the recipe to a "T" and ended up with way too much liquid. I used to cube steak. Overall the flavor was good but I was expecting a darker gravy as advertised. A little disappointed.
Delicious! I used a red yellow and green pepper. Pretty dish! Hit with the fam.
Wonderful! I used red, yellow, and orange bell peppers because that is what I had on hand. I used a little crushed tomatoes instead of fresh, since we did not have fresh. I thought it was delightful. Meat was fork-tender and delicious, and the sauce was lovely.
