Pepper Steak

I am participating in Tasty Tuesday Parade of Food today. I want to share with you a DELICIOUS Powell family favorite - Pepper Steak. Brad grew up eating this all the time, and I was introduced to it after we married. It's soooo good, and a great weeknight meal for your family because it's QUICK, EASY, and uses ingredients that you probably have on hand! Let me know if you try it, and what you think!
Pepper Steak
Makes 2 large servings, or 4 small servings
1/4 cup oil (you can use vegetable, canola, or even olive)
1 lb. steak, cut into thin strips (you can use any type of steak - round, strip, sirloin, ribeye)
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 green Bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup cold water
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons garlic salt (if using garlic powder, just be sure to add 2 teaspoons salt)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oil in skillet, uncovered at 325 degrees.
In a bowl, dissolve cornstarch in water and soy sauce. Add sugar, garlic salt, and ground pepper; set aside.
Add meat to skillet and brown.
Remove meat and set aside. Add onion and pepper slices to skillet and cook just until tender.
Pour cornstarch mixture into skillet with vegetables, stirring until sauce is thickened. (If sauce gets too thick, add a little water.) Add meat and cook several minutes until heated through.
(You may want to add more salt after you taste - I try to be a little conservative with the salt, and let everyone salt their own.)
Serve over hot rice.
Soooo good! Hope you and your family enjoy!
