Reviews for Gingered Pepper Steak
"Wouldn't change a thing. It's great!"
"Very good. Has a lot of flavor and pretty quick to make. Pretty inexpensive as well."
"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."
