Experience the rich and savory flavors of this Chinese Pepper Steak, featuring tender beef strips stir-fried with vibrant bell peppers and onions in a delectable soy-based sauce. Perfect for a quick and satisfying meal.



  1. Cut the steak into slices that are 1/2-inch thick, making sure to slice against the grain.
  2. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, and ginger. Whisk until the sugar is fully dissolved and the mixture is smooth. Add the steak slices to the marinade, ensuring they are well-coated.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steak strips in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Stir and cook until the steak is well-browned, approximately 3 minutes. Transfer the cooked steak to a bowl and repeat with the remaining steak, adding more oil if necessary. Set the cooked meat aside.
  4. Return the cooked steak strips to the hot wok and add the onion. Stir and cook until the onion starts to soften, about 2 minutes, then add the green pepper.
  5. Continue to cook and stir until the peppers become bright green and begin to tenderize, roughly 2 more minutes. Finally, add the tomatoes.
  6. Mix everything together to combine the flavors, and serve hot.


  • – For a spicier version, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or a sliced chili pepper.
    – Substitute beef broth with chicken broth if preferred.
    – Ensure the beef is thinly sliced for quicker cooking and tenderness.
