Pepper steak with white meat?!

Oh, and if you don’t like red meat you can use chicken or fish instead. The sauce used in this pepper steak recipe goes well with any meat. In case you went for white meat don’t overcook it.

When I share a recipe with you, I like for you to try it as is and then add your touch to it. Cooking the dish as per the recipe instruction, gives you an idea of how the combination of ingredients will taste, according to the outcome you can add or omit ingredients.

Pepper steak is a great dinner, it is quick to prepare, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money on an expensive cut of steak. The spices and the vegetables used to create a delicious flavor that will wrap each slice of steak.

Serve pepper steak with mashed potato or rice (brown or white) on the side. No matter what you do, do not use frozen pepper in making pepper steak. The frozen pepper will turn out soggy and will ruin the taste of the sauce. You need that crunch in your pepper, so please always use fresh peppers when making pepper steak.

    Although I don’t eat meat I do cook it every night for my husband. I’ve never tried pepper steak before because I thought it was too complicated. I appreciate the recipe and the printable! I’m going to try it.

    I think red meat is the way to go but I’m sure white meat with this recipe is just as great. You are definitely right we all cook our meals differently but that’s a good thing because it leads us to share.

    Just saw your recipe for pepper steak. Sound’s delish! Is there a conversion to make it in crockpot? I work and don’t usually have 45 minutes or more to cook in evenings. Any suggestions will help!

      Hi Tena, Using crockpot you can cook this dish on high from 3 to 4 hours, on low you can cook it up to 8 hours. Hope this helps.

    This recipe sounds wonderful. I bought everything to make it for supper tomorrow. I do have a question. When you add the water to the beef to cook for 45 minutes, you don’t cover the pan? Just want to make sure it turns out good.

    I haven’t made pepper steak in awhile. My daughter grandmother use to make it until she passed. I love your recipe because it’s similar to the way I made it but the only thing I did different was, I didn’t add water to the meat. I just seasoned the meat (I used ribeye) and cut it myself. I also put a little sauce to marinate in until i was ready to cook it then I cooked it like hibachi style then I took it out & cooked the veggies with fresh garlic. I like a crunch to my veggies so it was more like a quick little char. I made the sauce as instructed but I used a little teriyaki sauce also then I added the meat & veggies back in the pan & then poured the sauce on top & let the meat tenderize & finish cooking after turning the burner off. My friend & daughter LOVED it & my girlfriend who loves pepper steak but don’t like to eat peppers. I know weird lol. I have made this 5 days in a row last week because they keep requesting for it. We like a little juice or sauce, just enough to cover the rice but they can’t get enough of it. I’m tired of making it already lol. Keep posting. If you could do a recipe for black pepper chicken like the Chinese restaurants, I would lose my mind! Thank you for the awesome recipe.

    I made this last night and it was delicious (love the sauce) and simple to make! I’ll make this often and it will replace the recipe for pepper steak I used to make. Thank you for sharing an incredible recipe!

    I made this *almost* to the letter~ I used 1 whole red pepper and l whole yellow pepper as the steak I had was just under a pound. Thank you for providing a delicious way to use up a chuck steak 🙂

    Great recipe. We really loved it. However, at the beginning where it has a total cooking time of 35 mins, it really should be at least an hour if you’re cooking the meat in the water for 45 minutes.

    2 cups of water sounds like a lot.is the gravythick enough? Sounds like a good recipe. I guess it doesn’t need flour? Thanks

      Hi Mary, 2 cups of water will evaporate quickly while cooking, but it will give the steak enough time to cook until tender. The gravy will be a little thick but the cornstarch will make it creamy and silky smooth!

    I have tried many pepper steak recipes over the years. I grilled chuck steak yesterday and had some leftover. Decided to make pepper steak with it. I searched and found your recipe. Followed it as written. Truly the best.

    The sauce, onions and peppers were delicious. However….I bought a nice piece of chuck steak, cut it up and cooked according to directions and 2 hours later it was still like shoe leather. I had some uncured beef kielbasa that I cut up and used instead and it was really good. Think I would go with a much higher quality of meat next time.
