I'm not a huge fan of Chinese food...don't care for anything with that characteristic sweet taste...however I DO love Chow Mein and Pepper Steak, and I'm crazy about rice. This is my recipe for Pepper Steak. I used to have a real wok to stir fry in, but no more...so I make do with my large fry pan.
Start out with about 1 1/2 lb. of beef cut into cubes or strips. Heat oil in the pan and when it's hot, fry up your meat, rather rapidly. When the meat is browned stir in 1 cup water, 1/2 tsp. garlic salt, 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger, and 2 med. onions sliced up. Simmer all of that 12-15 minutes.
Slice 2 small/medium green peppers into strips and add to the mixture, cooking another 5-8 minutes.
Add 6 oz. of chicken broth to the pan, and in a bowl blend 1 T. cornstarch, 3 tsp. sugar and 3 T. Soy Sauce. Add that to the pan and stir everything continuously as it thickens.
Next cut 3 or 4 small Roma tomatoes into thin wedges, and place them all around on the top of the pepper steak mixture that is cooking. Cover and simmer 10-15 min.
Serve over rice with a sprinkle of crispy chow mein noodles on top.
