No but using Google Chrome after the page fully loads I right click and select Translate to English.
Or copy the URL and paste into Google translate.

Chinese Pepper Steak


8 Oz Flank Steak
2 tsp Light Soy Sauce
2 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
Tb Cornstarch
1 Tb Chinese Rice Wine
tsp Salt
tsp Sugar
2 tsp Peanut Oil

2 tsp Garlic (use a rasp grater)
2 tsp Ginger (use a rasp grater)

1 Tb Ketchup
1 Tb Hoi sin sauce
1+ tsp Chile Garlic Sauce (to taste)

4 tsp Peanut Oil, divided
1 tsp Salt
6-8 Ea Mushrooms, sliced
1 Ea Bell Pepper, strips
C Beef Broth
C Scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tsp Sesame Oil


Cut the steak with the grain into 1 - 2-inch-wide strips. Cut each strip across grain into inch-thick slices.

Put the slices in a bowl with the soy sauce, cornstarch, rice wine, garlic, ginger, salt, sugar, and the oil and stir with a fork. Marinate, refrigerated, for 30 minutes and up to four hours.

Combine the ketchup, hoi sin, and chile garlic sauce in a small bowl and set it aside.

Heat the wok over high heat. Pour 2 teaspoons oil down the side of the wok, then swirl the oil, tilting the wok to coat the sides. Add the salt and bell pepper. Stir-fry to cook the pepper. Remove to a plate. Repeat with the mushrooms.

Pour the remaining 2 teaspoons of the oil down the side of the wok over high heat, then swirl the oil, tilting wok to coat sides.

Add the beef, spreading pieces in one layer on the bottom and sides as quickly as possible.

Cook undisturbed, letting beef begin to brown, for 1 minute, then stir-fry until meat is just browned on all sides but still pink in center, about 1 minute.

Deglaze the pan with some of the broth.

Add the cooked peppers, mushrooms, scallions and the ketchup mixture. Bring to a boil and stir-fry until well combined and heated through.

Adjust the thickness of the sauce with the remaining broth as needed.

Toss with the sesame oil then transfer to a platter.
So I tried this recipe Andy, and it turned out excellent. Thanks a lot . I must say, I was a little nervous when adding the Ketchup, so I added half the amount at first, tasted then added the rest. In addition, I added some water chestnuts and baby corn. Definitely would make it again, and the crappy meat substitute was sufficient ( Not great, but edible).

Glad you liked it, Larry. I add a variety of veggies beyond the green pepper. Sometimes mushrooms, sometimes onion.

Maybe it would be OK with some extra firm tofu in place of the "steak".

I totally forgot I had a Martin Yan cookbook
I got to go check it out.
I actually got it about 20 years ago, even before I got really into cooking. I'm sure I'd look through it now with a whole new perspective.

He did a cooking demo out in one of the vineyards around here. Bought it and had him sign it back in the day.

ISO TNT Chinese Pepper Steak Recipe For those who know me, Im still vegetarian ( I haven't switched teams). When I was younger, I remember liking pepper steak. I havent had it in decades since I've become a vegetarian. I may have found a Meat substitute that can work in such a recipe. So I'm willing to give it a try. I just need a good recipe to go by. Thanks larry 3 stars 1 reviews
