Pepper Steak with Potatoes

I added sliced red potatoes to one of my favorite recipes for Asian-style pepper steak. Now this hearty supper satisfies everyone at home, including hungry guys with big appetites. —Kristine Marra, Clifton Park, New York

    Followed the directions, but this recipe needs some revision. The dish is missing flavor and seasoning. Bummer that I spent good money on sirloin steak strips for our dinner to lack excitement and flavor.

    2nd time I've made this dish. Easy and recommended, also this time I've skipped the potatoes to make steak and peppers... Delicious.
