Thanks for your recipe, Andy. It sounds delicious to me and it's copied and printed to try soon. There's no question there are a multitude of variations of any recipe but I for one, appreciate you sharing yours with us.
Sheesh.

I love pepper steak but I do mine lil different - no set recipe sorry

beef of your choice about a pound of meat - sliced thin - marniated in a soy sauce while preparing everything else
large onion -diced medium
couple gloves of garlic chopped up.
1-2 green peppers sliced - sometimes green & red
(sometimes I add mushrooms)
can of beef broth or your homemade
cornstarch
salt & pepper

in hot pan and peanut or canola oil saute meat till color changes
remove and then do onions, garlic, peppers salt & pepper till soften
add meat and its juices it created back into the pan
add about 2 tbl of cornstarch to the broth and pout into the meat mixture
stir until thickens - add soysauce to taste,
serve on white rice or fried rice.

My favorite Chinese restaurant, in Laramie, WY, made a Beef & Pepper dish with fresh tomato wedges tossed in at the last minute. It was so good, the restaurant is now closed. Andy's sounds alot like that recipe!

Sometimes I add some onion or sliced mushrooms. It all depends on what I have on hand and how lazy I am that day.

I'll have to try tomato sometime.

The tomato was cooked just enough to be softened. All of the veg were in chunks, easy to eat with chopsticks. The onions and peppers were about a 1/2 inch slice, tomatoes about 1 inch.

I've come close to the dish, but never spot on.

Charlie, you can see the grain of the meat (the muscle fibers). The instructions is to make cuts parallel to the muscle fibers.

It means to cut the meat in the same direction as the muscle fibres. It leaves the fibres long.

Tip Freeze beef half way then cut to get thin slices.
Beef, Peppers black bean sauce.
Hot wok, toss in chunks of green peppers, same size chunks of onions, thin sliced ginger stir fry, then chopped garlic, then beef, then black been sauce, a little stock, if you have prepped everything it should take 7 mins.
