Pepper Steak

Week 2 of our grocers' recipes was another winner. The only other time I've had Pepper Steak is at the Chinese restaurant in town. Simmer the meat in broth for an hour + really gave the meat a lot of flavor. Always thought round steak was tough and lacking in flavor but it was very tasty in this recipe.

1.25 pound Round Steak (ours was a bit bigger...1.61 pounds)
2 Tbls butter
2 cloves garlic
1 can beef broth (15 oz)
1 c green onions
2 green peppers cut into strips (I only used 1 because my peppers were HUGE)
2 large tomatoes
1 Tbls corn starch
1/4 c water
1/2 c soy sauce

Pound steak until 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with paprika. Let stand 15 minutes. Using large skillet, brown meat in butter. Add garlic and broth. Simmer for 1 hour.

Then, add onions and peppers. Simmer 5 minutes more or until peppers are tender.
Add corn starch, water, soy sauce and tomatoes. Heat through. Cut steak and serve over rice. (I actually took the meat out, cut in strips, then added it back to the skillet.)

  1. Nicole, LOVE IT! That you're trying the grocer's specials and posting on them!! They usually end up seperated from their intended use in my kitchen pantry. I have a suprisingly good whole wheat banana (and chocolate chip) bread that I need to guest post for you. Think of something crafty you can guest post over at the Scout Road and we'll swap!! Jen
