    This was one of my favorite stir fry recipes on this site. It tasted just like the pepper steak at my favorite Chinese restaurant. I made a couple of changes: I added two large white onions to the mix and substituted the cornstarch for 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of flour.

    I substituted 2 onions for the tomatoes. Tasty.

    I made half the recipe, so 1/8 cup of soy sauce was not as flavorful as the full amount. I omitted the sugar as that would make the sauce stick to the pan. My son hates tomatoes so they didn't appear in the finished dish.

    I marinated the strips of steak in the first 5 ingredients except I used low salt soy sauce. I quartered the tomatoes since a family member didn't like tomatoes & this may it easy for her to omit the tomatoes but still received the benefits of their flavor. When I make it again, I will add quartered onions to give it an enhanced flavor.
