Pepper Steak is a popular Chinese dish in just about every country. So you may find most recipes similar with slight variations. I like to use sirloin steak thinly sliced and seasoned with a mixture of salts, minced garlic, ginger and scallions along with some Chinese sauces.


As I always recommend, using authentic Chinese sauces such as Lee Kum Kee brand will give you a more authentic flavor. This is left to marinade a few hours in a sealed mixing bowl.


When ready to cook, it is quickly stir fried a few minutes with onions and green peppers preferably in a wok or non-stick skillet. This makes a quick, easy and tasty meal any day of the week.
