“My mom used to make this a lot when I was a kid. My mother was really good at taking any meat and making it tender. Choose whatever cut of beef you want but definately adjust the cooking time. We enjoy it at least once a month in my household. Sometimes I put a pat of butter on my rice before ladeling the pepper steak on top. Yum!”
