This was delicious. The only change I made was I used leftover roast beef cut in strips and I used half red wine vinegar and half balsamic vinegar. My husband loved it. I did thicken the sauce with cornstarch and water. The second time I made it, I used teriyaki marinade instead of soy sauce (much less sodium) and added water chestnuts. This is a favorite recipe.

I only gave this recipe three stars because while it's very easy to make it does need some tweaking. One of the reasons the steak comes out tough is because in essence the steak is being boiled in the sauce and not really stir-fried. To ensure that your steak comes out perfect every time stir-fry the veggies, remove from the pan. Then add the beef, stir-frying in a small amount of oil till it's done to your liking. Remove and keep warm with the veggies. THEN add the sauce ingredients and cook about 3 minutes, add corn starch to thicken. Add the veggies and steak to the sauce, tossing to coat and heat through -- about 1-2 minutes. The steak will be perfectly cooked and your veggies will stay crisp-tender. When I make this recipe I cut back on the vinegar and honey to about 2 TBS each and add some fresh grated ginger and red pepper flakes. It's even better then take-out! This recipe also works well with chicken cut into thin strips or quickly stir-fried shrimp! Read More

Made this recipe last night and I was a little nervous since it was my first time making pepper steak. Fantastic!! I used red,green,and yellow peppers. Used beef for stir fry already cut into thin strips. I also used low sodium soy and rice wine vinegar instead of the red and reduced it to 1/4c. Hubby loved it and said the sauce was so tasty.....I said its only 3 ingredients....it tasted like so much more. I did thicken the sauce with cornstarch/water. Will most definately make again. This was a great meal and very flavorful! Thanks! Read More

I was looking for something to do with my steak and bell peppers, and this was great! I never would have thought to use honey, but it worked well. One trick to try if you have time is to marinate the sliced beef first with soy sauce and minced garlic, along with a pinch of baking soda and about a tablespoon of cornstarch. Work that mixture into the meat with your hands, then just let it sit for half an hour. It makes the meat really tender and even more flavorful. Read More

We LOVE this recipe! I make it every couple of weeks. I've even made short-cuts that do not alter the taste. I use a bag of frozen pepper/onion stir fry vegtables and stir fry meat (steak or even sometimes chicken). It is always delicious!! Thanks so much for this quick and easy recipe. Read More

Amazing. I made this recipe as "Beef & Broccoli" (substituting the peppers for broccoli). It came out absolutely delicious! I added hot pepper flakes & garlic powder to the sauce for extra kick.. and thickened it with cornstarch.... I sprinkled sesame seeds for garnish) This dish served over brown rice was amazing!
