Ingredients list for the Pepper Steak Stir-Fry

Steak stir fry recipe

This beef stir fry recipe is super easy and requires only a handful of ingredients. We like to keep the peppers a little crunchy to make the stir fry more filling. Make sure to check the way the grain of the meat is running. You want to cut the slices across the long lines of the grain for the most tender meat.

How to make steak stir fry

The method for homemade steak stir fry is easy and straightforward. Start with mixing the steak stir fry marinade, then sauté the peppers in a little oil in the pan. Remove the bell peppers and set them aside on a plate. In the same skillet, add the flank steak on one layer and cook on each side to sear the beef and continue to cook until cooked through. Add the bell peppers back to the skillet with steak and add the sauce. Simmer for 1-2 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, chopped herbs, and serve the beef stir fry immediately!

1. To make the pepper steak stir-fry: In a small bowl, whisk the garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, Sriracha, and cornstarch.

2. In a skillet over medium-high heat add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the diced bell peppers and cook 1-2 minutes until tender. Remove the bell peppers and set them aside on a plate.

3. Turn the heat to high and add the flank steak on one layer and cook on each side to sear the beef and reduce heat to medium-high and continue to cook until no longer pink and brown on each side.

4. Add the peppers back to the skillet and add the sauce. Simmer for 1-2 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and sesame seeds. Serve the pepper steak stir-fry over rice, rice noodles, or cauliflower rice. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the pepper steak stir-fry recipe

This pepper steak stir fry recipe is thinly sliced flank steak cooked with red and green bell peppers in a sticky sweet-savory sauce. This quick and easy meal tastes way better than take-out! The only time-consuming part of this recipe is cutting up your flank steak and bell peppers. You can buy pre-cut beef to save time, but we still suggest to prepare all the ingredients before you begin. Be careful with salt as soy sauce is already salty (try to get low sodium soy sauce). You shouldn’t need to add any salt to the recipe.

What kind of beef is best for stir-frying?

Thinly sliced or cubed flank steak, top sirloin steak, or skirt steak will work great in this steak stir fry recipe. Slice the meat thin against the grain so it stays tender, and cooks up quickly without drying out.

What to serve with the pepper steak recipe

You can serve the pepper steak stir fry with white rice, rice noodles, or cauliflower rice to cut on carbs.

How can I customize the pepper steak skillet?

You can add a variety of vegetables to the stir fry. Here are a few suggestions: jalapeno peppers, onions, julienned carrots, broccoli, sweet peas, baby corn…

How long to keep the pepper steak in the refrigerator?

Keep the leftover pepper steak stir fry in the refrigerator for 2 days in an air-tight container. Reheat quickly in a skillet with a few tablespoons water, or use the microwave.

    This was fantastic. I used flat iron steak instead of flank steak for affordability and it was fantastic. The sauce was to die for. I added mushrooms sweet peas and onion to the bell pepper but the sauce was the key!

    This recipe is super easy and delicious!!! I found it really easy to alter slightly as well. I tossed in snow peas and half a jalapeño. Next time I am going to try it with broccoli!

  • Wendy

    Low sodium soy sauce is a must for this recipe, but it is so simple and so good! Included chopped onions (cut the same size as the bell peppers) and used gochujang instead of Sriracha, and this was a hit even with my 6yo...definitely adding to my dinner recipes rotation!
