Chinese Pepper Steak Recipe

My husband enjoys Chinese food, and he's my test kitchen judge. Thus far, there aren't many dishes he doesn't care for. Early in our marriage, I tried not to serve some of the common dishes I grew up with and have become more creative with cooking. —Shirley Claggett Melfort, Saskatchewan
