EASY PEPPER STEAK

INGREDIENTS:
MARINADE INGREDIENTS:
  1. 1/4 cup soy sauce
  2. 1/3 cup water
  3. 2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  4. 1 Tbsp. corn starch
  5. 1/8 tsp. coarsely-ground black pepper (or more/less to taste)

PEPPER STEAK INGREDIENTS:
  1. 1 lb. thinly sliced flank steak or sirloin, cut diagonally across the grain into thin strips
  2. 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  3. 12 mini sweet peppers, thinly sliced (or 2 regular-sized bell peppers, thinly sliced)
  4. 2 scallions, sliced diagonally into 1 inch pieces, white and green pieces separated
  5. 2 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  6. 4 garlic cloves, minced

DIRECTIONS:
TO MAKE THE MARINADE:
  • Add all marinade ingredients to a large bowl or ziplock bag, and stir to combine. Add the sliced steak, and toss in the marinade. Cover/seal and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
TO MAKE THE PEPPER STEAK:
  • Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the sweet peppers and white part of the scallions, ginger, garlic, and saute for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to the saute pan. Remove half the steak from the marinade with a slotted spoon (reserving the marinade) and saute about 2-3 minutes until browned, stirring occasionally. Transfer steak to plate with the veggies. Saute the remaining steak, then transfer to plate.
