Pepper Steak With Rice
photo by Andrew K H.
- Ready In:
- 3 cups hot cooked rice
- 1 lb lean round steak, cut into 1/2-inch strips
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 1⁄2 cups beef broth (oxo or bouillon will do)
- 1 cup sliced green onion
- 2 green peppers, cut into strips
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 2 large tomatoes, cut into 8 's
- Method: While rice is cooking, pound meat to 1/4" thickness.
- (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.
- Using a large skillet, brown meat in butter.
- Add garlic and broth and simmer covered for 30 minutes.
- Stir in onions and green peppers.
- Cover and cook 5 minutes more.
- Blend cornstarch, water and soy sauce.
- Stir into meat mixture.
- Cook, stirring until clear and thickened- about 2 minutes.
- Add tomatoes and stir gently.
- 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)
This was excellent!!! I used a yellow onion instead of the green onion and I substituted a yellow pepper for one of the green. I followed everything else to the T. The broth thickened up just right and the addition of the tomato was a nice added touch. Even my six-year old, who thinks he should eat cereal three times a day, liked this meal. This is such a simple meal to make and it will be on our regular menu from now on.

I love to cook and so I am thrilled that I found recipezaar. I work as an educational assistant in a food school so I am around food all day long. I have four children, three of which have already flown the coop so to speak but I still have my 'baby' at home. (He's 21). I am lucky in that I have my summers off so I spend a lot of time trying new recipes and catching up on my reading. I also play soccer in a ladies league to stay in shape.
