This pepper steak is an easy, delicious and take no unusual ingredients to make. I have a lot of pepper steak recipes in my chef bag but this is the one that’s closes to the one my mom used to make for me and my siblings. I remember coming home from school and smelling the onions and peppers being cooked and knowing I was about to get to enjoy one of my favorite comfort foods.
My mom didn’t cook a lot of stuff but what she did cook she mastered. If you’re reading this hanks mom!
