This is deliciously spicy! Totally enjoyed the peppers that were sauteed with the onions and garlic. I cubed my beef, instead of slicing it...just read 1 inch pieces. I did cook mine about 2 hours to get it tender. I used sirloin steak. Also, next time I will not add any salt....mine was a bit salty. My beef broth had salt in it, and that is probably why. I didn't use flour to thicken the sauce....just let the rice absorb it. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC Fall 2011.
