Black Pepper Beef


Stir Fry Black Pepper Beef
Stir-fried Beef
with black pepper, bell peppers and onions

This black pepper beef dish is one of my favourite Chinese beef stir fry.  The family get loads of satisfaction every time I cook this, where the only ‘complaint’ I will get is that I did not cook enough. I’m quite confident that everyone who try this dish will like it! We really lick up everything (from the gravy to the sliced ginger) on the plate! And the black pepper marinade recipe can be used for stir frying other meats such as chicken, if you do not take beef.  This recipe is courtesy of my friend Joyce, who is always so patient to impart her culinary expertise to me. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe with me, Joyce.

    Whoa….you add so much B&W pepper!
    I have cooked black pepper beef some time ago. Need to post soon! Mine has less veg though – just broccoli.

    Delicious! My family loved this too! Since I don’t buy beef, I have my easy pork version coming up。:)

    This looks great, and not overly complicated.

    This black pepper dish looks really yummy with rice. Wow, one tablespoonful of black pepper, is it very spicy? So sad, the other half dun like black pepper-ed dishes. *sob*

    Looks great: we’ll be fighting over this one at our house!

    This does look like a great recipe — we often take black (and white) pepper for granted, because we put it in everything, but it’s really a star ingredient in this stir fry.
