I chickened out and only used 1 T red pepper flakes and it was plenty hot enough for us. I also subed Splenda for the sugar. I did wait and add the green pepper later. This is really good. The beef had enough fat to fry it all up perfect. Good stuff Jelisa!!

This is an excellent recipe. I took the advice of some of the other reveiws and cut back on red pepper flakes by 1/2. I love spicy food but I was cooking for others. I think 1 1/2 tablespoons would be perfect. I really enjoyed this recipe.

I'm korean so I loved the heat! It was so simple and seemed so healthy b/c it cooks so well w/o the oil. Great thing about this dish is that you can change the spiciness or even the meat and the dish still tastes great! :) I personally love tender meat, so the thinner you cut the meat the better, I thought. Tastes very similar to a traditional korean spicy pork bulgogi dish.

This is just way to spicy for us... and we love our food with heat! I think maybe halving the red pepper flakes would make it a bit more palatable... It has a lovely presentation and smells wonderful while cooking, I just wish we could have tasted something other than "hot!" We will try this one again, just with fewer pepper flakes... Thanks!

After tasting the sauce and finding it a little too spicy, I doubled it, and added some boiled glass noodle to the dish. My kids loved it so we will be making this again. Thank you for sharing.

It sounds very tasty. One of my favorite things growing up was my Mom's "Hungarian Goulash" which is about as Hungarian as a Big Mac. Noodles, ground beef, onion, peppers and canned tomato. LOL. She called it that because Grandma did and she used what she had...which is how all great recipes start. Keep posting and I promise to make this soon.

This is NOT a Korean dish...at ALL!!! Please do not be ignorant and make things up! Sukiyaki is name of a Japanese dish and this "spicy pepper steak" listed here is not even Japanese. It seems like this is rather a simple stir fry. Please be responsible for information that you put into public's view.

Wow, I can't believe how easy this was. I added only 1/2 of a tablespoon of pepper flakes since some of the people can't stand spicyness (I myself would have put 3tbsp). I used brown sugar instead and also added a yellow pepper and diced jalapeno. Thanks!

Great Recipe! I'm a fan of spicy food and this was perfect. I also added a couple of jalepenoes. That might have been a little too much :) Thanks for the great recipe.
