Easy Beef Pepper Steak
(2) Cans of Beef Gravy (I usually use Campbells, but others work fine)
1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
Soy Sauce (to taste)
Canola Oil or Olive Oil (about a tablespoon or a couple of capfuls)
1lb Beef (I usually use London Broil) cut into small strips
1 Bag of Frozen Pepper Stir Fry mix (has green, red, yellow peppers and onions)
1 Bag of Egg Noodles
(2) Pots (1 for the noodles, and 1 for the sauce)
1 Frying Pan
To start, open the cans of gravy and soup into one of the pots, put it on Medium heat (around 6 on some burners) on one of the burners. You'll need to
keep stirring it to mix them together. (eventually, it will come to a boil, but this will take about 6-10 minutes)
After you've put this on, (so it's just started heating while you do this), put the oil in the frying pan on Medium High heat. Add the frozen pepper
stir fry and let it cook, stirring occasionally.
By the time the gravy/soup mix is boiling, the pepper stir fry mix should be done (or even sooner).
Add the pepper stir fry to the gravy/soup mix, and turn the burner on Low. Let it simmer while you do the next step. Stir it in good, and mix the
peppers and onions in the sauce. Add a bit of Soy Sauce to it also. (to taste...start with a couple of capfuls).
In the same frying pan you just dumped out the pepper mix, now put the beef strips into the frying pan. (still on Medium High heat).
After this starts to cook, in the other pot, fill it about 2/3 with water, and put it on another burner to boil (on High).
The beef strips will only take about 5 minutes to cook. Keep mixing them around, so they are cooked evenly. When done, add them also, to the
sauce/pepper mix now simmering.
So, the sauce and pepper mix should be simmering, and by now, the water is likely boiling. Once it is a rolling boil (lots of big bubbles), add the
egg noodles to the water. Make sure to cover all the noodles with water. Turn it down to Medium heat, and let it cook for about 6 minutes. The sauce
and pepper mix should be simmering during this time (stir it occasionally).
After the 6 minutes, pour the pot of noodles into the colander (over the sink) to get just the noodles, and not the water. Once the water is gone.
turn on the cold water, and run the colander (with the noodles in it) under the water real quick just to stop them from cooking.
At this point, you're ready to serve. Put some of the noodles on the plate, and then use a ladle or big spoon to heap on some of the peppers, onions
and beef with the sauce, and enjoy!
I would suggest buying a crock pot. crockpotladies.com... is a good site to start. Google for recipes.
Crockpots are great. Nice thing is, when you're away at work, it's cooking dinner for you. You come home to the great smell of a ready meal. Can't
