  1. 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!!!

  2. 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!

  3. 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. 🙂
