Pepper Steak

Pepper Steak is an old time dinner recipe that just warms your insides! It's tasty feel good comfort food. In this particular healthy recipe, I added more vegetables, and attempted to follow the half plate rule, proportion wise. I wanted half of the recipe to be vegetables, one quarter to be starch, and one quarter protein, which is a healthy diet habit to follow when cooking meals. This is an easy one pot meal that I cook in a 16 inch electric skillet because it's huge! This skillet is one necessary piece of kitchen equipment that I could not do without. I use it almost daily for one pot meals, stir-fries, and pasta dishes!

  • Add the peppers and zucchini and cook for a few minutes until they are crisp tender. Do not overcook them, because they are better crunchy.

  • Add the Yakisoba noodles and heat them through for a couple of minutes. If you opt for other noodles, cook them first and mix them in at the end.

This was a quick and easy meal. You could eliminate the noodles and serve the stew over rice, which is how pepper steak is traditionally served, but rice takes longer to cook than this recipe!
