Steak and Peppers Recipe {A Family Fave}

My son is a very picky eater like his momma /not sure WHERE he gets that peculiar behavior from!
He is visiting his grandmother this week and she has asked me to compile a list of his favorites so that she can be well stocked with food that he likes.   
He rarely asks that I cook for anything more than dinner in a can for him. A small pantry inventory of Ravioli, cereal, waffles and chicken noodle soup and he is all set!

Well this week I am sending along to Grandma a copy of his favorite recipe of all time, Peppered Steak. Years ago a family friend cooked this for us when my mom was recovering from surgery.  We have tweaked it through the years and now it has evolved into our own Steak and Peppers.
I figured I will share the recipe with you as well because
it is YUMMY! and makes me feel like a real chef every time I make it.   

Steak and Peppers 
3 tbs vegetable oil 
1 lb round steak 
1 med onion
1 med green bell pepper 
2 cans diced tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste 
garlic salt to taste
1 cup beef stock 
2 tbs cornstarch
2 or 3 tbs soy sauce
2 cups cooked rice

Cut up the round steak into cubes or 2 inch strips and fully cook in a skillet of warmed on medium heat with vegetable oil.
Add salt, pepper and garlic to taste. 
Add diced onions and bell peppers to the meat and cook until sauteed.

Stir in beef broth, diced tomatoes and soy sauce (amount of soy sauce varies to your taste) and cook on low heat and simmer about 15 minutes.
Combine 2 tbs cornstarch with 3 tbs water and mix in a small cup.  Add the mixture into the Steak and Pepper skillet and stir it in well.  

Simmer for about 5 minutes as the sauce will thicken. 

Our family likes it served over rice.  I use about 2 cups of Minute Rice and usually cook it while the Steak and Peppers are simmering.
Very easy!  If I can do it without destroying the meal then you can definitely give it a try too! 
Tami cooked, Bubba approved! 
Good luck Grandma!
…and good luck to you too – I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    You don't say when to add the canned tomatoes, with the broth I assume. Correct? This sounds great. I will be making it. Thanks.

    Carla, You are so right, tomatoes (my favorite part) are added at the same time with the beef broth! YUM!

  4. Jeanne Baney

    The recipe sounds wonderful. I make something similar but the soy sauce is a surprise as well as serving it over rice. My recipe is going to have to be tweaked now!

    I love discovering family favorites! They are always the most comforting food, and it gives me an insight of the family itself. Pepper and steak normally go along well together. But I would still like to try how your grandma does it. ;D Liz@Harter House
