Weeknight Beef and Vegetables

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ellie_

This was delicious with mashed potatoes but next time I will serve it over egg noodles. The original recipe used just bell peppers but I think it is wonderful with other vegetables too. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (November 2005)

This is a wonderful easy beef recipe, I made this with minute steaks, I did add in a little brown sugar and increased the garlic and cabbage, DH and myself enjoyed this very much, thanks Ellie!...Kitten:)
