Reviews for Pepper Steak for 2
"Made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I loved it. Easy and delicious."
"This is a great recipe. So yummy."
"Quick prep time, tastes better than take-out. I made a few changes, I used beef stock instead of water and beef bouillon cube, and used a whole small onion. Next time will use more pepper. Overall good recipe."
"This recipe was great. I did add red wine and a little more garlic and served it over rice."
"This was good, nothing spectacular in my opinion but my husband really liked it alot, it was not a winner with the kiddos though, my 12 year old picked at it but did eat it, my 3 year old took one bite and spit it out, so we just gave him the noodles with some cheese instead."
