- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 pound beef tenderloin or sirloin cut into thin slices
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2-3 cloves garlic - minced
- 1 small onion - coarsely chopped
- 1 big red bell pepper - cored, seeded and cut into strips
- 1 big green bell pepper - cored, seeded and cut into strips
- 2 tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, mix together the cornstarch, salt and, pepper. Add the beef slices coating each slice with the cornstarch mix.
In a large pan or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute garlic and onion until tender and aromatic. Add the bell peppers and cook for 2-3 minutes or just until half cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Turn heat to high. Add butter and the beef strips. Cook for 2-3 minutes just until slightly browned. Do not overcook to keep the meat tender and juicy.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together water, soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon cornstarch to make a slurry. Pour the mixture to the beef and add back the bell peppers.
Season with salt and pepper as needed. Cook for another minute or so but do not overcook and bell peppers should still be a bit crisp.
Remove from heat and serve on top of rice immediately.
