Beef Pepper Steak and Rice

My grandma taught my Mummy how to make this when she was just a little girl.  It has been one of her favorites her whole life.  We hope that you will enjoy it too.  Since it DOES have onions in it, doggies are NOT allowed to have any…but Mummy saves a few pieces of the meat before cooking it with the onions and cooks it separately for us with a bit of rice!!!  YUMMY

Beef Pepper Steak and Rice

.

4 cups cooked Jasmine rice (made according to package directions)

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 large sweet onion, cut into small bite-sized chunks

1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips then into smaller bite-sized pieces

1 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips then into smaller bite-sized pieces

1 1/2 pounds top round sirloin cut into thin strips (you can use the pre-cut kind made for fajitas if you are pressed for time…cut into smaller pieces)

3 Knorr beef bouillon cubes

1 cup hot water

1 teaspoon Gravy Master (this comes in a tiny bottle and is great for making gravies and sauces)

2 Tablespoons soy sauce

2 Tablespoons corn starch

1/2 cup cold water

3 cups cold water

1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

.

In a large skillet, add the olive oil and saute the onions and peppers over medium heat until they are lightly browned and getting limp.  Add the strips of beef and continue to stir everything together until the beef is cooked through.  In a small bowl, add the beef bouillon cubes, hot water, Gravy Master and soy sauce.  Mash the bouillon cubes until they begin to dissolve in the hot water and then pour it into the skillet.  In a separate bowl, mix the corn starch and the cold water and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved.  Pour this into the skillet and stir.  Your mixture will begin to thicken immediately.  Pour the 3 cups of cold water into your saucepan and continue to stir.  Add the black pepper and stir.  Simmer covered, on low heat for about 1 hour, adding water as needed.  When ready, serve your beef pepper steak over the prepared jasmine rice!  This is just sooooo delicious.  It is simple to make and your family will love it!

Bone appetit!
