Pepper Steak With Rice

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 40 mins

I first had this for dinner at the house of a good friend and it was delicious! That was at least 10 or more years ago and I still make it for my family and company, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Method: While rice is cooking, pound meat to 1/4" thickness.
  2. (I use sandwich steaks, inside or outside round as it eliminates the need for pounding.) Sprinkle meat with paprika and allow to stand while preparing other ingredients.
  3. Using a large skillet, brown meat in butter.
  4. Add garlic and broth and simmer covered for 30 minutes.
  5. Stir in onions and green peppers.
  6. Cover and cook 5 minutes more.
  7. Blend cornstarch, water and soy sauce.
  8. Stir into meat mixture.
  9. Cook, stirring until clear and thickened- about 2 minutes.
  10. Add tomatoes and stir gently.
  11. Serve over fluffy rice.

This is a really good recipe! Of course, I changed it just a little, lol... I added chopped regular onion to it because they give a lot of flavor, (but kept the green onion tops too), also added 1/4 tsp. of ginger, and after tasting, 2 tsps. sugar to the sauce portion because I like my pepper steak to have a little zing to it. We had the neighbors over to dinner, and there wasn't any left over. Thanks for the recipe, bert! :o)

bert, this was wonderful! I tried to stick to the recipe, but got carried away! Threw in a sliced red pepper and a dab of hoisin sauce. Absolutely delicious! Thanks, from me and my full stomach!
