Made PAC Fall 08. Wonderful! Loved all the veggies in this dish...I used a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and it made it that lil bit spicier...just the way we like it. :)

*******NOTE: Mine took a lot longer than the recipe says to get nice & tender. Probably about an hour and fifteen minutes.***** I've been looking for a really good pepper steak recipe, and this is it!! A few changes I made: I left out the thyme. Didn't sound (to *me* anyway) like it really fit. I left out the crushed red pepper flakes and decided to try sriracha sauce cos I had some and wanted to try it. If you should decide to do that, go REALLY easy on the sriracha. ;0) Like, less than 1/8 tsp. I also added a big clove of garlic. Everything needs some garlic. I had a two lb package of round steak so I just used all of it; hence, I also put in more beef broth. Also used two green peppers, and a big onion. Makes a good amount. Excellent!!! Thanks Likkel!

Quick, easy and delicious! I omitted the water chestnuts and added about a tbsp of brown sugar. I tasted it before adding the brown sugar and it was good that way, but I decided that I just wanted to add a slight bit of extra sweetness to it. I think my family would have loved it either way. I've been looking for a good pepper steak recipe and this is the one for me!

Really, really good. And super easy. The only thing I'd change next time would be to leave out the red pepper flakes during cooking and just sprinkle them afterwards, my kids thought it had a little too much bite for them. Thanks for posting!
