This is a simple and quick one pan pepper steak recipe. It's full of savory flavors with a bit of sweetness from the red pepper and onions. If you like a bit of a kick, we suggest adding extra red pepper flakes. Served over white rice, it's a scrumptious weeknight dinner.

How To Make pepper steak on rice

  • Green and red bell pepper, onion, and tomatoes added to the skillet.
    Slice green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion into narrow strips. Add to mixture above. Continue simmering and add cut up tomatoes (quartered). Sprinkle some red pepper flakes. Use very little; just for a bit of a bite.
  • Water and corn starch added to create a gravy.
    Prepare the Minute Rice or you may use brown rice if preferred. Next mix the 2 Tbsp corn starch with 1/4 c of water until smooth. Gradually add it to the pepper steak mixture. Simmer until thickened like gravy (20 minutes or longer). If too thick, depending on your taste add more water.
