Chinese Pepper Steak Recipe

Pepper Steak is basically a stir fried Chinese-American dish that consists of sliced steak, green bell peppers, and onions. The best part about this dish is the delicious tasting sauce, a mixture of soy sauce, wine, water, sugar, corn starch and oil. Enjoy!


1 pound flank steak (sliced)


1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry or rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoon corn starch
2 tablespoons vegetable oil


2 teaspoons ginger root (chopped or grated)
2 scallions (chopped)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for cooking)
1 large Onion (sliced)
2 green bell peppers (sliced)
4 garlic cloves (chopped)
1 8oz can of sliced mushrooms (drained) or fresh sliced mushrooms

  1. Marinate your sliced steak for about 20 minutes to a half hour.
  2. Add oil to your pan. Add garlic, ginger, and scallions. Stir fry for about 30 seconds.
  3. Now take a slotted spoon, add half of the steak, and stir fry for 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 
  4. Repeat with the remaining half. (Note: you need to reserve the marinade, as it is used to make the delicious sauce at the end.)
  5. Add oil and stir fry mushrooms, onion, and pepper for 2 minutes.
  6. Push vegetables to the sides of your pan. Pour marinade into the center and stir fry until thickened and bubbly. 
  7. Blend in vegetables, add steak and heat thoroughly. 
  8. Serve on top of white rice.

There is a huge difference between rice wine and rice wine vinegar. Since the intro to the recipe mentions wine but the ingredient list says vinegar, I am wondering which it is actually supposed to be. Thank you.
