This is one of those quick, easy and simple recipes that every cook should have up their sleeves. I wish I had a pound for every time I have cooked this over the past 45 years or so . . . I'd be a very rich woman! Green Pepper Steak is one of those delightfully quick and tasty dishes that goes together in a flash and can be on the table in not much more than half an hour or so.
It's fairly economical as well, as it stretches a little bit of meat to heartily feed four people . . . with the addition of some peppers, onions, garlic and tomatoes. I will wager it fulfills the requirement for at least two of your five a day . . .
I love the crunchiness of the vegetables and the full flavoured mixture of the ginger, soy and garlic that almost marinates the meat as it simmers to fork tender . . .
The tomatoes add a touch of colour and sweetness, and maybe even a bit of richness to the dish. In any case whatever . . . it all marries beautifully and makes for a tantalizingly simple and quick weeknight supper. All you need do is to cook some rice and Bob's your uncle.
