    Serves: 4 

    • 500g beef top sirloin steak
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons white sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cornflour
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
    • 1 red onion, cut into 2cm squares
    • 1 green capsicum, cut into 2cm squares
    • 2 tomatoes, cut into wedges

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Slice the steak into 1cm thick slices across the grain.
    2. Whisk together soy sauce, sugar, cornflour and ginger in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth. Place the steak slices into the marinade and stir until well coated.
    3. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large frypan over medium-high heat and place 1/3 of the steak strips into the hot oil. Cook and stir until the beef is well browned; about 3 minutes then remove the beef from the wok to a bowl. Repeat twice more with the remaining beef. Set the cooked beef aside.
    4. Return all the cooked beef to the hot wok then stir in the onion. Toss the beef and onion together until the onion begins to soften; about 2 minutes.
    5. Stir in the green capsicum then cook and stir the mixture until the capsicum has turned bright green and started to become tender; about 2 minutes.
    6. Add the tomatoes then stir everything together and serve.

    Made it without marinading...just threw everything together after browning the steak strips in the oil. I doubled all the other ingredients and completely forgot to add the tomatoes. (the main reason I chose this recipe) Still Delicious! Oh, I did use fresh ginger that I was trying to use up instead of ground.  -  01 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe immediately went into my recipe box! Will definitely make it again. My dinner plans changed so the meat marinated for 24+ hours and was very delicious - I would recommend marinating at least a few hours or overnight. I only used red & yellow bell pepper and green onions because I had no fresh tomato. Added garlic and crushed red pepper for extra kick.  -  06 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was the best pepper steak recipe I've tried! I gave 4 stars though because I added garlic and didn't use tomatoes, but that's just a personal preference for me.  -  18 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
