I'm just trying to learn how to cook at 64 years of age. I've always cooked really easy things in the past with not much taste. I had no idea how to season food. Then I got the novel idea to use a recipe! This one said it was easy so it was right up my alley. I followed the recipe almost exactly....I used less onion for the first try and I cooked my vegetables a little longer because I like them a bit soft. With the first taste I was like, hmmm, does not taste like my mom's pepper steak. Then I was like, I feel that the taste of the beef broth is overpowering. I had a second plate and afterwards I was spooning the sauce from the pan directly into my mouth. OK, I licked the plate clean, too. I think I liked it.

This is the exact same recipe, word for word, that I've had for 42 years. It came from Uncle Ben's rice recipes. It's very, very good and my family loves it.

This recipe was SO easy. Simple ingredients. Short grocery list. My husband is a picky eater, but he really enjoyed the pepper steak, as well as our 14-year grandson. I followed the recipe, no add-ins. THANK U.

Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe. My entire family enjoyed. I added a bit more soy sauce to the pot- my only change.

My kids are crazy about pepper steak. So this was a fantastic recipe. We made it tonight and it was delicious. However, I must say I added and replaced some of the ingredients. I replaced the broth with a beef bullion I use knorr. I also added 3 stalks of celery, 2 green peppers, one red pepper and one can of Goya tomatoes sauce. In addition, I added 1/4 soy sauce to my mixture. My meat was season with garlic powder and added more 2 tablespoon of paprika.

I was very pleased with how this turned out! I did season my beef a little more by adding a little salt, pepper, and steak seasoning. I will not use frozen already sliced peppers again (my choice, not the recipes) as I felt they became a little too soft.
