Pepper steak is a popular dish that combines tender bites of steak with sweet peppers in a savory homemade sauce. This recipe features sirloin tips, green bell peppers, onion, and garlic to create a simple, fresh, and delicious foundation for a fabulous family meal.
The pepper steak comes together quickly because it's cooked entirely in one skillet with just a handful of common ingredients. You'll start by cooking the sirloin steak pieces, then sauté them with onion and garlic before adding beef broth. The bell peppers are added as you make the sauce so they retain a little crispiness. Stewed tomatoes are optional in the sauce, and the cornstarch and soy sauce mixture thickens it to perfection in just a few minutes.
This pepper steak recipe is fast enough for a weeknight meal when served over noodles or rice to soak up the sauce. Mashed potatoes or a simple green salad are great side dishes for the flavorful pepper steak.
