Steak and Peppers is a go-to meal for busy weeknights. Braised round steak with green peppers and onions is served with steamed white rice.

We’re still busier than a whole hive of little workers bees around here. So busy that I would have sworn yesterday that I met myself coming back from the grocery store when I was going to the post office :-)  So I’m going to keep today’s post short and sweet with this recipe for one of our favorites for a week night dinner.

This recipe has all the usual ingredients that you’d expect to find in Pepper Steak. The difference is in the cooking method. Where that recipe is usually cooked as a quick stir-fry, my Steak and Peppers recipe is cooked for a long time on the stovetop.

The prep time is very minimal and it doesn’t demand any attention from you at all once you get it going. Of course, that’s what I like best about it.

How to Make Steak and Peppers

Start by prepping two pounds of nice round steak. Remove any excess fat and discard it. Cut the steak into strips about 1″ x 3″.

Steak strips browning in a skillet.

Next, heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over high heat. Add the meat and sear it until it’s nicely browned.

Adding beef broth to browned steak.

Add the beef broth.

Adding garlic powder, salt, and ginger to the skillet with the beef.

Then add the garlic powder, salt and ginger. Stir everything together very well. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and cover the pan. Cook at a simmer for 30 minutes.

Sliced onions and green bell peppers added to the skillet.

While the steak is simmering, prepare the bell pepper and onions by cutting them into thin strips. Add them to the pan, bring the heat up again briefly, turn it down, cover the pan and simmer another 30 minutes or until the veggies are tender and the meat is cooked through.

Thickening the sauce with cornstarch, water, and soy sauce.

In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch, water and soy sauce. Add the mixture to the pan and cook for a few minutes until the sauce is thickened.

Serve over hot, steamed rice.
