Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Also I discovered my supermarket's meat department sells pre-cut streak in strips labeled beef for stir fry. What a time saver. If you can find this item at your store, buy it.

I made this recipe for dinner last evening and my partner really enjoyed it. He was looking for rolls because he said traditionally pepper steak is served over rolls, but we didn't have any. I had made white rice to serve it on a depicted in the photo. Also I doubled all the ingredients in the sauce to have extra gravy because we like gravy. Yummy!

Made this today for my wife and I. Used 1 cup beef broth so I could have more gravy. Turned out great. Will make again.

I use mushroom soup sauce. More rich flavor

What can I use instead of soy sauce? I am allergic to soy

Hello - We add soy for salt flavor and brown color in this recipe, so if you leave it out you can add some salt to add flavor. You could also try adding Hoisin sauce, which would give it an Asian flavor. Some people have found that "coconut aminos" (available in some supermarkets and specialty stores) is also a great substitute for soy sauce, and has a similar flavor.

Thanks, I have to make it!

I just made a Pepper Steak the day before discovering this recipe. It was so good and much like the recipe above, but I love lots of gravy or sauce so I added a can of mushroom soup and 1 serving of chopped broccoli. My son pleads "Mom, you've got to show me how to make this."

Yummy. I like lots of veggies with my Chinese food so I added broccoli, onion, baby corn, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts & red pepper flakes for a little zing. Even after adding all the extra ingredients, I still had plenty of sauce for my brown rice. Great base recipe to start with & adjust to your family's tastes.

Can't wait to try!
