This is my go-to pepper steak recipe. My only alterations are to double the amt of ground ginger (or grate in some fresh ginger) and I use beef broth instead of water to add more beefy flavor. Depending on how much "sauce" is there, I sometimes increase the amt of beef broth (and corn starch if necessary) to get plenty of that great sauce to go over rice.

This was fabulous and so easy! I did make 1 change by increasing soy sauce to 1/2 cup, making a fuller bodied sauce. I served over rice and since there were leftovers it was even better the next day. Thanks for a great recipe!
