Pepper Steak


Preparation10 minutes
Cook time15 minutes
ServingsServes 4


  • 1 lb Sirloin Steak
  • 2 Bell Peppers, cut into chunks
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, grated or minced
  • 2 tsp of Grated Fresh Ginger
  • 1/2 cup of Low Sodium Soy Sauce plus 2 tbsp of water (forgot to mention in the video)
  • 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of Mirin
  • 2 tsp of Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tsp of Sesame Oil
  • 2 Tbsp of Neutral Oil
  • 1 Tbsp of Cornstarch


    1) Slice the beef really thin (popping it in the freezer for 15 minutes will help the steak firm up a bit so it makes it easier to slice) add it to a bowl, add one Tbsp of soy (from the total amount above) along with one teaspoon of cornstarch, mix well and set aside.

    2) In a large skillet, add a touch of oil, preheat over high heat, then in batches, sear the beef in batches for just a minute or two before removing to a plate and set aside.

    3) Add another drizzle of oil then add the peppers and onions, sauté for 2 minutes while making the sauce.

    4) In a bowl or measuring cup, add the soy, water, brown sugar, mirin, vinegar, garlic, ginger and cornstarch, whisk well and set aside.

    5) After 2 minutes, add the seared beef back in along with the sauce, cook all together about 2 minutes, add a small splash of water if the sauce is a tad thick, then serve with scallions and starch of choice.
