I was lucky enough to get some Flank Steak last Saturday, a nice four pieces of it and all four pieces a really good size. You don't often see Flank Steak here. I froze three bits and then used the fourth bit to make us this delicious stir fry. I also happened to have gotten a large bag of really nice peppers at the same time, so it just seemed the natural thing to do was to put them together.
I love meals like this. They go together really quickly and all you really need on the side is a bit of rice. Actually with this you may not even need rice because this steak and peppers is excellent on a toasted bun with a bit of cheese. Just sayin . . .
Simple and uncomplicated the most time consuming part is cutting everything up, so once you have done that, the rest is a dawdle. You will want to cook the meat in batches so that it actually browns instead of stews. It's the browning that gives an extra depth of flavour. I like to get the peppers a bit browned as well. It's all good. A bit of salt and pepper, some garlic powder and that's pretty much it. I add some Kejap Manis, which is a sweet thick Indonesian soy sauce, but feel free to use tamari if you want.
