Pepper Steak

Difficulty: ***

Ingredients:
1-2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 med onions, cut into thin wedges
2 small green sweet peppers, sliced
1 1/2 lbs. beef round steak, thinly sliced
1 1/c cups beef broth
1 cup snow pea pods
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons corn starch
1 Tablespoon paprika
3 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
Hot cooked rice, noodles, or other pasta

In a large skillet or wok, stir fry the garlic in 1 tablespoon of butter or margarine for 1 minute. Add the onion and green pepper and stir fry for 4-5 minutes until vegetables are tender. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl. Add the remaining butter to the skillet or wok. To prevent overcrowding, stir fry half the steak at a time until the meat is cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Return all the steak and the vegetables to the skillet or wok. Add the broth and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Stir the water and cornstarch together in a cup, then add the mixture to the skillet. Cook and stir until the sauce is bubbly. Cook for two minutes more, stirring constantly. Add paprika, tomato wedges, and snow pea pods to the skillet. Cook for another 1-2 minutes to evenly distribute the sauce and heat the food thoroughly. Serve over rice, noodles or pasta.
