Sizzling Pepper Steak Stir-Fry


  • Olive oil for searing
  • 1 pound top sirloin steak, thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (1 green, 1 red), sliced
  • 1 small white onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger paste

For the Beef Marinade:

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, generous amount

For the Stir-Fry Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • Fish sauce, a few dashes (optional)
  • 5 tbsp water, approximately
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • A generous drizzle of honey or 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp black pepper or freshly cracked pepper, to taste


  1. Place the beef in the freezer for 15 minutes before slicing. This helps in cutting thin, even slices.
  2. Slice the beef against the grain and toss it in a bowl with all the marinade ingredients. Allow it to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Prepare the stir-fry sauce by whisking all ingredients together in a bowl and set it aside.
  4. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear the marinated beef until browned, then remove and set aside.
  5. In the same pan, sauté the bell peppers, onion, garlic, and ginger until the vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes.
  6. Return the beef to the pan, pour the stir-fry sauce over the top, and stir to combine.
  7. Cook until the sauce thickens, then turn off the heat.

Garnish and Serving:

  • Garnish with chopped cilantro, a sprinkle of Momofuku chili crunch, and sliced scallions.
  • Serve hot over a bed of fluffy white rice.

This Pepper Steak Stir-Fry is a quick and flavorful meal that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner but special enough for guests. Enjoy the tender beef and colorful peppers in a savory, slightly sweet sauce!
