Mom's Pepper Steak

Photos taken from last night's dinner!

This is one of my favorite Pepper Steak recipes which of course I found on Pinterest...I have made it a few times and we all love it! Nick likes the meat super tender so I do all the steps and when it says to "cover and simmer for 45 minutes" I transfer it to the crockpot and let it cook a couple of hours on low...then when we are ready to eat I transfer it all to a pan and mix in the cornstarch and soy sauce...anyways, here it is!

1½ pound Sirloin steak (½ inches strips)
1 tablespoon paprika
2 each garlic cloves, crushed *this is the only change I make...I love garlic so I mince a few cloves instead
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup onions, sliced
2 each bell peppers, sliced
2 large tomatoes, diced
1 cup beef broth
¼ cup water
2 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoon soy sauce
3 cup hot cooked rice

Season steak with paprika and rest at room temperature while preparing remaining ingredients.

Sautee crushed garlic, add steak, and brown gently. Careful not to burn the garlic.

Add sliced onions and bell peppers. Continue to cook until vegetables are wilted.

Add diced tomatoes and beef broth.

Cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes.

Combine water, cornstarch, and soy sauce.

Stir into steak and cook until thickened.

Serve over freshly cooked rice.

One more thing...last night when I made it I added a can of Rotel tomatoes instead of the 2 large tomatoes...that worked nicely too!
