- 1 lb flank steak cut into 1/4 inch thick strips
- 1 tbsp soy sauce low sodium
- 1 tbsp red wine
- 4 tbsp peanut oil
- 1 large onion julienned
- 1 medium red bell pepper julienned
- 1 medium green bell pepper julienned
- 3 medium green onions chopped
- ¼ cup soy sauce low sodium
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- ⅓ cup red wine
- ⅓ cup chicken broth low sodium
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tbsp ginger fresh, minced or grated
Make Sauce: In a small bowl whisk all the sauce ingredients together and set aside.
Marinade: Add the beef, 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp red wine to a bowl, toss everything together and let it sit for 10 minutes to marinade.
Cook Beef: Add the peanut oil to a wok and heat over high heat. The wok needs to be quite hot before adding the beef to it. Add the beef to the hot wok and cook for about 3 min over high heat until it's lightly charred.
Cook Veggies: Push the beef to the side of the wok and add the onion and peppers and cook for about 1 minute until the vegetables start to soften a bit. Add the green onions and stir everything together.
Combine: Pour the sauce over the beef and veggies and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute until the sauce thickens a bit from the cornstarch.
Serve: Serve over cooked rice.
- When you're cutting the beef, make sure to cut against the grain which means cutting the beef 90 degrees to the direction of the fibres.
- Make sure your wok or pan is HOT before adding the beef to it.
- You can substitute the beef with your choice of protein. Chicken, pork and tofu can all be used as substitutes – just make sure you slice them into small bite-sized pieces!
- You can substitute beef broth for the red wine if you prefer.
- Your leftover pepper steak will last 3–4 days in the fridge when stored in an airtight container!
- If you want to keep leftovers longer, pop them into an airtight container and place in the freezer. Your leftover pepper steak will keep for 3–4 months in the freezer.
