I use to make this for us a lot because it's very simple and quick. It's also yummy and good for finicky kids. Hope you all enjoy!

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. The Test Kitchen
