Pepper Steak

Pepper Steak
“Happy New Year” friends!  Can you believe it’s 2012?  I’m anxious to share my Pepper Steak recipe with you, but first how was your holiday?
I’m hoping it was extra merry and bright and that like me, you are playing catch up after time with family and friends.  My amazing mom joined us for two weeks and we had a great time together.  She is a gift wrapping pro, chef and designer.  Imagine, she even packed her rubber-gloves!  Don’t worry, I tried not to take advantage of her willing spirit.  We shopped and dined out and she even got to cheer for the BSU Broncos!
What a gift she is to me.  Thanks for all your love and help mom.
All of our children and grands arrived between Christmas and New Years.  We had a fabulous par-tay; lots of yummy food, late nights and precious little ones.  I’m feeling sweet misery, missing all 27 of them, washing sheets, towels, and putting our house back together!
Pepper Steak  sounded like an easy fix with brown steamed rice for dinner last night.
Fire up your wok.  Pepper Steak is so easy to chop and stir-fry steak and veggies together in a tiny bit of oil in a flash.
Be sure to serve healthy, nutty, brown rice with it.  This truly is a 30 minute meal!

    What a lovely photo of your mom! And the Pepper Steak with those crisp-tender veggies makes me want some right now. A perfect dinner to start the new year in a healthy way.

    Your mom looks (and sounds) great! We love our moms! 🙂 Your recipes always make my mouth water! Yum! I know what is for dinner tonight! Thanks for sharing!

    Your mother is lovely! What a good time you must have had.
    The pepper steak looks delicious and pretty healthy too!

  4. Garden of Egan

    You did have a houseful!
    Your mom is beautiful. That’s funny that she packed her gloves. I’m afraid I WOULD have taken advantage of. If she’s that fanatic about packing her gloves I bet her hands are lovely.

    The recipe looks yummy. I love brown rice, but don’t make it often enough. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. The Café Sucré Farine

    Your mom’s so pretty! You definitely favor each other! How fun to have her with you – appreciate every moment – I lost my mom earlier this year and life is just not the same without her!
    Your pepper steak looks delicious – I love quick and easy but delicious recipes like this one!

    never made this before – seems like an easy weeknight meal.

    I tried to open this earlier but had problems. If I had, maybe I wouldn’t have wandered around the store a little while ago trying to think of a quick dinner. I would have had pepper steak!

    Your mother is beautiful. Really and truly beautiful. You have some awesome genes in your family. Do you know that?

  8. SavoringTime in the Kitchen

    Your mom is adorable and I see where you get your good genes 🙂 So funny that she packed her rubber gloves! Glad you had such a fun time over the holidays. Your pepper steak looks wonderful!

    Your mom is beautiful! I don’t eat meat but love a good stir fry and especially brown rice though no one else in my family appreciates its goodness. :/ Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Tammy

    Your mom is so lovely! Runs in the family :). Too funny she brought her gloves along! Special you were able to spend the time together at the holidays.

  11. Becki Jacobs

    Your mom looks beautiful. I love mine, too and she is definitely an inspiration. I love this pepper steak. It’s nice to see healthy recipes that use lean beef.

  12. Jacqueline

    Oh boy do you look like her! She is beautiful and the light just radiates from those beautiful eyes. What a houseful! I bet it is quiet, and took a lot of time to straighten up. We still have a lot of work to do, but it was a wonderful Christmas.

    This looks so healthy and fresh. Your pictures are gorgeous.

  13. Cathy

    How wonderful that you lovely mom joined you for the holidays. My daughter and family live in Chicago and I miss them terribly at holiday time. You had quite a houseful. Lucky you.
