This quick and easy Pepper Steak Stir Fry recipe is a classic Chinese American dish which can be made at home in under 30 minutes!
In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, cornstarch, ginger, salt, and pepper.
Warm 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the sirloin; cook until well brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and repeat with the remaining sirloin.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Add the onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring until vegetables soften and are a bit charred, about 3 minutes.
Add beef, and any accumulated juices, back to the skillet along with the cherry tomatoes and soy sauce mixture.
Cook, stirring, until heated through and sauce is bubbly and thickened, but tomatoes still have form, about 3 minutes.
Serve over hot cooked white rice, sprinkled with some diced scallions on top.
When cutting the beef, it’s important to cut against the grain (not in the same direction), so the beef is tender.
