What do you love to eat when you’re just cooking for two?
If you’re looking for a date night at home meal option or just looking for a great meal to enjoy, I have one for you!
My husband and I love eat a stir fry for lunch or dinner. Our favorites are beef broccoli stir fry and beef pepper stir fry. In the beef pepper stir fry, the sauce gives it a sweet flavor to the beef and peppers. You can serve this stir fry with or without rice.

This looks awesome! I know my husband would love it. I’ll have to stick it in the rotation!
My husband will love this! Thanks for sharing.
Your dinner looks amazing, and the sauce makes it for sure! Colored peppers are my favorite, and I sometimes buy them frozen to save time! Pinned for later!!!
These look more like fajitas for me.
Considering I know how delish fajitas are, I’m sure this stir fry is amazing too.
Such a simple delicious recipe!! Perfect for date night!
It’s been SOOOO long since I’ve cooked for two… but this looks so good! We do love a great stirfry!
Pepper steak is my go-to at any Chinese restaurant! I absolutely love it, and your recipe looks amazing! Will have to attempt this at home now!
I am saving this recipe. Now that my kids are grown and we are into this “psuedo-empty nest” phase in life, cooking for two is a frequent thing. I like this easy to follow recipe. My husband would love this. And if ever the kids are home, I can just double or triple the ingredients. 🙂
This looks tasty! We’ll have to give it a try! Thanks!
This looks like something my husband would love. Much more healthy than the take out we’ve been doing.
This makes me want to have a second dinner!
