How To Make GREEN PEPPER STEAK
Step 1: Marinate the sliced steak in 2 tbsp soy sauce and sugar.
Step 2: Mix the cornstarch, beef broth, the remaining 2 tbsp soy sauce in a small bowl or 2 cup measure until well incorporated and set aside.
Step 3: In a large skillet, heat a tbsp vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add half of the beef and cook until the edges
turned brown. Flip and cook the other side for another 2 minutes. Transfer the cooked beef to a plate and keep warm. Add a tbsp more of oil
and cook the rest of the beef slices.
Step 4: Add the last tbsp of oil into the pan and saute the bell pepper, onions with black pepper for about 5 to 8 minutes or until the veggies
are crisp-tender and a bit charred.
Step 5: Adjust the heat to medium and add the garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper flakes. Constantly stir for about a minute until the
garlic is aromatic.
Step 6: Add the cooked beef back into the pan with the juices and pour over the beef broth mixture. Continue to cook for 3 to 5 minutes more
until the sauce has thickened. Add the tomatoes and gently stir to coat.
Step 7: Once done, garnish with extra black pepper and parsley.
Step 8: Serve over hot rice and added soy sauce for serving.
