  • 1 lb sirloin steak cut in thin slices
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper cut in 1-inch squares
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper cut in 1-inch squares
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small onion sliced about 1/8-inch thick
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Seasoning/Thickening:
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dark sesame oil optional
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Mix the seasoning/thickening ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and heat.
  • Add the sliced meat. Cook over medium-high heat until the meat is browned on all both sides.
  • Add the garlic, onion and mushrooms. Cook until onion just begins to get soft–about 5 minutes.
  • Add the peppers and the 1/2 cup water. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, or until peppers are crisp-tender and are bright colors.
  • Stir the seasoning/thickening mixture so everything is blended well. Add to the beef/pepper mixture in the skillet and cook until thickened and juice begins to bubble.
  • Serve over jasmine rice.
