Pepper Steak

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 262


1 pound beef round steak
2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon cornstarch, divided
2 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
2 teaspoons cooking oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1/4 cup water
1 (4-ounce) can sliced mushrooms


Slice steak in thin strips. If steak is partially frozen, it is easier to cut (freeze about one hour). Marinate in 2 teaspoons cornstarch and a little soy sauce for about 20 minutes. Stir-fry in oil until pink is gone. Add onion and pepper slices. Sauté about 3 minutes. Add one cup water and soy sauce to taste. Turn down heat and simmer, covered, for approximately 30 minutes. You may simmer longer and add water if dinner is delayed. Just before serving, add about one tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in water. Add mushrooms. Serve hot over rice.

Variation: Other vegetables can be added such as one can sliced water chestnuts, or 2 cups bamboo shoots, or one cup celery sliced into thin strips.
