I found this in a light & tasty magazine and have been enjoying for years. The couple who shared it had been losing weight and this was part of their menu.
I changed just a few things, by adding garlic and store bought stir fry sauce.
You can change it by using chicken, tofu or pork.
I love this because you can make it your own and it's always great!

3Next stir fry the peppers for about 3 min. (you may need a bit more oil. Add the beef to the middle, cook and stir for about 3-4 min.
