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 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 in a variety of vegetables in 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 absolutely delicious! I’ve tried other recipes and they didn’t come close to the flavor of this dish. Served atop riced cauliflower. Definitely a keeper and will be sharing with others as well!
