1.    Pepper Steak

Description: Description: Pepper Steak


6 servings

Serving size

2.5 oz. steak, 1/2 cup peppers

Preparation time

5 minutes

Cooking time

10 minutes

·         1 lb. flank steak

·         3 tbsp. lite soy sauce

·         1 tbsp. Chinese rice wine or dry sherry

·         2 tsp. cornstarch

·         1/2 tsp. sugar

·         11/2 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided use

·         4 medium green or yellow bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch squares (about 3 cups)

·         5 slices (1/8-inch-thick) peeled fresh ginger root 

a.    Using a sharp knife, trim excess fat from the flank steak. Cut the steak lengthwise into strips about 11/2 inches wide, then crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.

b.    In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice wine, cornstarch, and sugar. Add the steak and toss to coat.

c.    In a large wok or heavy skillet, heat 1/2 tbsp. of the oil over high heat. Add the peppers (turn down the heat to medium if the wok starts to smoke). Stir-fry the peppers for 3 to 4 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Remove the peppers with a slotted spoon; set aside.

d.    Add the ginger to the pan and stir-fry for 15 seconds. Add the remaining oil, then add the steak, and stir-fry over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the ginger slices with tongs and discard. Return the peppers to the pan, and cook for 1 minute to warm them through.
