BBQ Pepper Steak

Classic pepper steak gets a twist with BBQ sauce! 20 minutes from stove to table!

Do you ever pick up those bags of frozen chicken and steak strips at the grocery store? We started making salad eating around here more of a priority around here a few months ago, and I like buying those pre-cooked chicken strips for easy lunchbox salads. Paul had mentioned that he wanted to try the steak strips sometime, so I picked them up. And he never ate them. Ha!

Please tell me I'm not the only one with this problem!

So, this bag of frozen steak strips have been staring at me for months in the freezer and finally I decided to use them myself in this dinner. You could certainly use fresh steak strips in this recipe instead, but I like how quick and easy this was to throw together. Beef has become CRAZY expensive around here, so I like using what I've already bought to make a really tasty dinner. 

I also used sweet mini peppers in this dinner, but feel free to use regular sized bell peppers instead - one red, green, and yellow would be enough.

BBQ Pepper Steak

8-10 mini sweet red, yellow, and orange peppers, quartered length-wise
1 small onion, cut into thin strips
1 lb package frozen pre-cooked steak strips
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
cooked brown rice

Cook peppers in onions in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and frozen steak strips. Cook steak and peppers 2-3 minutes or until steak is heated through and peppers are tender. Add soy sauce and BBQ sauce, stir to coat. Cook two minutes or until sauce is heated through. Serve over hot cooked brown rice.

Oh, I just LOVE fast and easy dinners like this!

  1. I've totally bought them and kept them on hand. We love using them in our go-to dinner of choice: quesadillas. LOVE that I can add this pepper steak to our menu of quick fixes!!

    Aimee, when I took the first bite of this my initial thought was that these would make killer quesadillas!! I guess I need to try that, since you use them too. Gotta love quick and easy, haha!
