Quick Steak and Peppers Stir Fry

I love Stir Fry:  Simple.  Easy.  Healthy.  This steak stir fry is one of our favorites, we eat often.   {Steak is always popular at my house.}

This delicious stir fry is hearty enough for cold, winter nights; but I especially love it on hot, summer days when I don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking – less than 30 minutes to have dinner on the table, and you don’t have to heat up the oven.  Gotta love it!  If you are a fan of stir fry, you’ll also want to try Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry with Noodles or Hoisin Beef and Scallion Stir Fry.


Quick Steak and Peppers Stir Fry


1 – 1 1/2 pounds top sirloin steak, trimmed

Sea Salt and Fresh ground black pepper

1 large garlic clove, minced

2-3 medium bell peppers

1 large onion

3 tablespoons canola oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

2 tablespoons cilantro (optional)


Slice the steak across the grain into thin strips.  Season with salt and pepper and rub garlic onto meat.  Let sit while you cut the peppers and onions into 1/4 inch strips.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet on high heat.  Add the sliced peppers and onions, cook stirring, until just barely tender, about 2 minutes.  Remove the veggies to a bowl and cover to keep warm.

Heat an additional tablespoon of oil in the skilled on high heat, until it is shimmering, but not smoking.  Add the beef and let cook without stirring until one side is brown, then stir.  Cook for one to two minutes.  Add the peppers and onions, soy sauce and sesame oil.  Stir to combine.  Remove from heat.

Sprinkle with cilantro (optional) and serve with steamed rice.

Serves 4
