Maria's Pepper Steak


This pepper steak recipe is one of my favorites, using just a few ingredients that I normally have on hand. It's hard to mess up! You can add more or less of each ingredient depending on your tastes.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 large bell peppers, sliced into thin strips

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • cup soy sauce

  • cup honey

  • cup red wine vinegar

  • 1 ½ pounds flank steak, cut into thin strips


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add bell peppers, onion, and garlic; sauté until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  2. Increase the heat to medium-high and pour soy sauce, honey, and vinegar into the skillet. Add beef and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes. Return cooked vegetables to the skillet and cook for 10 to 15 more minutes.


If you prefer a thicker sauce, stir in a little flour or cornstarch just before removing from the heat.
