  • 1 ½ pounds round steak

  • 1 medium green bell pepper

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 (29 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1 cube beef bouillon cube

  • 2 cups warm water

  • 2 cups hot cooked rice, or as needed


  1. Trim any fat from steak; thinly slice steak into 2- to 3-inch strips. Core and seed bell pepper, then thinly slice into 3-inch strips.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add bell peppers; cook and stir until peppers start to soften and steak is browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat and add diced tomatoes, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger, and black pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

  4. Stir cornstarch and bouillon cube into water; stir well until dissolved. Pour mixture into the skillet. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens to a gravy-like consistency, about 10 minutes.

  5. Remove from heat and serve over hot cooked rice.
