Quick Pepper Steak

Kathy Witt


After many years of making this, I found a shortcut by accident. So, here we go...
I had always used "Round Steak" as my mother did. I found myself with a package of stew bf and decided to use the fresh veggies I had. The stew beef cooked faster and was very tender.
The key to a recipe like this, is to never let the water boil off..you have a dinner in half the time as if you had used a tougher cut of meat. (Next I will try Beef and Broccoli using stew bf!)
