Gingered Pepper Steak Recipe

This wonderfully tender steak from Susan Adair of Somerset, Kentucky is a treat even for folks not watching their diet. "When my mother-in-law shared the recipe, she said it cooks up in no time...and she was right!" Susan says.

"Very good recipe - will definitely make many times. The sauce is so good it could be used with chicken and any stir-fry vegetables you like or even with rice noodles."

"I used top sirloin because that was what I had in my freezer. I also doubled the sauce, used rice wine vinegar and added onions. Really, really good."

"I used left-sirloin steak for this. I added mushrooms and green onions to the green peppers. After sauteing the vegetables, I added the marinade, then added the steak. I wasn't sure how it would turn out since I used left-over steak, but it was delicious."
