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.

    what a coincidence. I also cooked stir fry beef on the very same day! But it’s with kailan.

    Gee, noob, I love to find recipes which consist of ingredients I don’t need to shop for. I think I love you.
    And I particularly love pepper steak, but my recipe is a bit of a wimp in regards to the amount of black pepper, so I know I will enjoy yours.

    I love black pepper and white pepper too,
    Especailly when I’m eating fried rice,
    I just can’t stop pouring them over my rice!
