Bell-Pepper Beef Stir-Fry

Servings : Serves 3-4

A quick, healthy and delicious steak dish, goes well with fried rice or pasta or baked/fried potatoes or naan.


  • 500 gm steak, cut into strips
  • 3-4 bell peppers, sliced lengthwise (assorted colors if possible)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. ginger paste
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste
  • 1 tsp. tomato paste/puree
  • 2 onions, sliced thinly
  • 1 tsp. red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika powder
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • splash of soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 2-3 green chillies, chopped


Boil the steak (with a pinch of salt, half tsp. each of ginger and garlic pastes and a dash of black pepper) in a pressure cooker until tender (about 10-15 minutes). You can boil in a regular pan if you don’t have a pressure cooker, it will take longer…just boil until the meat is tender. Reserve any stock/broth that remains after the meat boils, we will add that to the dish.

Heat oil in a wok, then add the onion slices and fry until they become translucent. Add the sliced bell-peppers and stir fry for about 3-4 minutes until they start to turn tender. Add the tomato paste, ginger and garlic paste, chilli powder, turmeric and paprika. Then add the steak with whatever stock/liquid remained in it after boiling. Simmer together for about 5 minutes (you can add water if you want a bit of gravy). Add the chopped green chillies and a splash of soya sauce, then taste for salt and adjust. Turn off the heat and serve!

Enjoy! 🙂
