Pepper Steak with Onions and Potatoes

Pepper Steak, updated with a sweet and spicy gravy and served over mashed potatoes, becomes the ultimate comfort food when it’s made in the Midwest. Hearty and filling, your family will love this meal any day of the week!

This Pepper Steak represents what I love about Midwestern cuisine: the ability to turn any food into comfort food. In the Midwest, Pepper Steak is served over mashed potatoes. With gravy. A sweet and spicy gravy.

In most of the country, Pepper Steak is found on Chinese restaurant menus. These recipes and any Home Cook Copycats are Asian-themed and served over rice.

1 lbs chuck steak cut into medium slices
1 large onion cut into medium strips
½ green bell pepper cut into medium strips
½ red bell pepper cut into medium strips
4 medium potatoes, sliced 1/4″ thick
1 leveled teaspoon black pepper
Salt to taste
2 cup Boiling water
3 tablespoon oil
3 tablespoon soy sauce I used low sodium
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon sugar
½ cup warm water
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ginger powder you can use fresh

In a pan, add three tablespoon oil and fry the chuck in two batches until brown on both sides. Remove and keep aside. Don’t crowd the pan when browning.
In the same oil fry the onion until translucent. Remove and keep aside.
In the same pan, fry the bell peppers for few seconds and keep aside.
Add the fried chuck back to the pan, Season the chuck with salt and black pepper. Add two cups boiling water and let it cook on medium heat for 45 minutes or until the meat is tender. Add water if the meat is still tough and continue cooking.
