Pepper steak is an easy weeknight dinner and boy is this a good recipe. The steak is cooked tender with peppers that soak up the flavor of the savory tomato gravy. Excellent served over rice. This meal is going to become a family favorite and end up in your weekly dinner rotation. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
