    This was absolutely delicious. My husband loved it but wanted more meat. Next time I make it I will double the meat and maybe add some sliced carrots. Will definitely go on my rotation. Thanks for the recipe.

    I made this using a 15.25 ounce can of beef broth and several little home grown bell peppers in assorted colors, so it may well have been more than the recipe called for. Also, I used 6 large stalks of celery, as a whole bunch seemed like too much. The result was delightful served over rice, and will be made again.

    *******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!
