Our family really enjoyed Misty’s recipe for pepper steak www.MealsbyMisty.blogspot.comย I love to cook but, I don’t always have time to prepare meals during the week for my family. This recipe is perfect to make during the weekend and serve up fast during the week.

  1. Velva… This is truly an easy way to have my favorite Chinese without having to do 'take-out'. Great blend of flavors which one can adjust. Many thanks for a perfect quick dinner.


  2. Thanks so much for trying out my recipe! Your looks fantastic. We had it for dinner last night…so tasty! Oh, I am also making my pepper steak for 2 Christmas parties this week, each for around 30 people. I have a lot of peppers to chop! Happy Saturday!


  3. Yumm… pepper steak. We have it here several times a year, maybe more, grins. I add a pinch of sugar to balance out the peppers and the soy sauce, but essentially our recipes are very similar. So good!


  4. You know I saw this earlier and guess what? I just ate some for dinner, but I did not cook it my good friend Sunny Garden down the road did, and they even delivered it…HA! Yes, you had me wanting it, but I was out working and it began to snow here, so I batted my eyelashes at hubby and he said go out or take out, I sang…\”Baby its cold out side…\”, now for a glass wine!


  5. Too many P's will get hard to say hehe, Perfect Pepper Steak.I think steak done this way is great too, I love the colours and flavours which compliment really well this type of dish…cheers Thanks for sharing. kisses xxx


  6. Your measurements sound like mine. I hate to have to think about measuring when I'm cooking so I can write it down to post. ๐Ÿ™‚ This looks like a lovely recipe, great photo too. I love checking out everyone's ideas!
