Pepper Steak

By Skinnytaste.com Total Time:15 minutes Pepper steak is quick, easy and perfect to whip up any night of the week. Strips of beef and bell peppers are stir fried in a wok to create a delicious main dish, ready in no time! I love it with brown rice, but cauliflower rice would also be great on the side.



  • 12 oz top round beef trimmed
  • 4 teaspoons plus 3 tablespoons soy sauce liquid aminos for paleo or whole30*
  • 1 tbsp rice wine
  • 3 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot for paleo or whole30
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion sliced into thin strips
  • 1 bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • crushed red pepper flakes optional



  • Slice beef into thin slices with the grain. Cut each strip across the grain about 1″ long so you have small thin slices. Place in a bowl and add 4 tsp of soy sauce, 1 tbsp of rice wine, 1 tsp cornstarch and black pepper.
  • In a small bowl, mix 3 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp water and 2 tsp cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Heat the wok on high heat. Swirl in 2 teaspoons of the oil and add the beef spreading evenly in the wok. Cook undisturbed for 20 seconds letting the beef brown. Using a spatula, stir meat, cooking another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add remaining teaspoon of oil to wok, add peppers and onions and cook about 4 to 5 minutes. Return beef to the wok, add the sauce and red pepper flakes and stir fry about 30 seconds until slightly thickened.
  • *use gluten-free soy sauce for gluten-free
