Sirloin Steak and Peppers over Rice

I’m a total carnivore who really likes about any meat, but especially sirloin steak. Although, my favorite way to enjoy steak is cooked rare on the grill with a dash of salt, once in a while I enjoy it smothered with peppers and onions and so does Bill.

Turning your favorite steak into a stir-fry dish makes for a gratifying quick dinner that your whole family will like.  Having all the ingredients prepped and ready to add to the skillet makes it easy, easy. 

Pepper steak is another of those comfort food dishes that’s full of flavor ~ color also and I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Sirloin Steak and Peppers over Rice


1 pound sirloin steak, cut into 2-inch strips
1 tablespoon oil
1 large onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup beef broth
½ teaspoon each salt and pepper
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 green bell peppers, sliced into thin slices
1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin slices
½ cup cold water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
4 cups hot cooked rice


In a large skillet, heat oil.
Add steak, onion and garlic and cook over medium heat until onions are translucent and steak is partially cooked.
Add broth, salt and pepper and Worcestershire sauce and heat through.
Add bell peppers and stir them in the mixture.
Cook for 5-8 minutes until peppers are cooked to your liking.
In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water.
Add to steak mixture and stir until mixture thickens, about 2-4 minutes.
Serve over hot rice.
