Old Style Chinese Pepper Steak Recipe


Authentic Chinese food is available everywhere, it seems. But it hasnít always been that way. During the 60s and 70s, Chinese restaurants across the US served Americanized dishes that had some Chinese nuances, but were nothing like the dishes we enjoy now. My husband, who is the pickiest eater on the planet, remembers those old Chinese dishes and recently asked if I could make the Old Style Pepper Steak (which he thinks is actually Chinese) like he used to eat in Chinese Restaurants. I readily agreed, of course, since it would be a change from the boring Southern beans and cornbread that he prefers.
ĒĒ
Itís actually very easy to make the following Old Style Chinese Pepper Steak and the entire meal, rice and all, can be made in less than 30 minutes (make sure you start the rice before the stir-fry). There is a minimal amount of chopping involved, thanks to a frozen pepper stir-fry that can be found in most grocery stores on the frozen vegetable aisle. And nowadays, Chinese ingredients can be found on the Asian aisle in those same grocery stores. This version may not be totally authentic Chinese, but will remind you of those old Chinese restaurants, and it is good, fast, and easy.
