A satisfying stir-fry that comes together in a flash. Sirloin Steak, 1/4 inch thick and cut into 1/4 inch bite sized pieces is stir-fried with peppers and green onions.
Sweet peppers (also called bell peppers) and beef have always complimented each other in culinary dishes.
What is the nutritional value of bell peppers?
Bell peppers are one of the most nutrient-dense foods available.
Though a 3 1/2-oz (100 g) serving of raw bell pepper provides only 20 calories (mostly as carbohydrate and fiber), it is a good source of a large number of nutrients.
They include: vitamins-C, K and B-6. They also contain beta-carotene, folate, thiamine, iron, potassium, and magnesium.
B-6 is needed for blood cell formation, vitamin-k helps with blood clotting, and potassium and magnesium help with your heart muscles pumping of blood through your body.
A delicious Asian flavored sauce is used to flavor the beef and peppers.
The sauce ingredients include: soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame seed oil and rice vinegar.
This Asian Beef with Peppers and Green Onions is served with coconut rice. Though you can serve it over plain white rice.
