Pepper Steak With Rice

This is one dinner that makes my husband feel that he's had a real meal. :-) It's delicious, filling, and I always make enough to ensure that we have leftovers for the next day.

I start with 1 1/2 pounds of beef sirloin steak, cut in slender slices about an inch long. Sprinkle the steak with about 1 T. of paprika and 1 clove of garlic, minced. Let that sit while sauteing the vegetables.

2 red bell peppers (I used Carmens from our garden) sliced, 3 ribs of celery sliced, and a medium onion chopt. In a large skillet, over medium high heat, saute veggies in olive oil. I like to use two silicone pancake turners for this job. THEN, remove the veggies to a plate and set aside.

Heat 2 T. olive oil in the skillet and saute the beef with paprika and garlic. The sirloin can still be a tad pinkish when you add the veggies back into the skillet with the beef. Now, stir in the sauce:

1/2 c. beef broth (I use Kitchen Basics)
1/4 c. burgandy
1 1/2 T. corn starch
1 t. honey

Heat over low til sauce is thick and glistening.

Just before serving, stir in 4-6 diced Roma tomatoes. (I've found that I can substitute my home canned tomatoes after draining the water from the jar of tomatoes.) Heat thoroughly.

Use sea salt, pepper, and cayenne for seasoning. Soy sauce is optional. I don't add it to the recipe, but set the bottle on the table. My husband likes it, but it gives me a headache.

Spoon meat and veggie mix over hot Basmati rice. Serve your happy family. Resist the temptation to eat all of it - so that you can have leftovers tomorrow. :-)

Thank you, everyone, for your nice comments. You won't go wrong with this recipe! But be sure to sprinkle on the cayenne. It's an important ingredient!

yumm......I'm trying to go gluten free for awhile, but it's difficult. Everyone else in the family loves wheat, and there are 7 more of us. Hmmm....can I do it? We'll see. The pepper steak looks delicious. Maybe I'll cook dinner tomorrow night...May the Lord bless you!
