Reviews for Spicy Pepper Steak
"Amazingly simple dish to prepare and tastes AWESOME! The only change I made was to use only half a can of Rotel, still delivered quite a kick. Next time though I will cut back on the cornstarch, 2 TBLS was a bit much, very thick, I added some pasta water from the egg noodles. Over all it was an awesome dish, one I will definitely make again. Thank you LaDonna!"
