Tonight's recipe was a success. I found this Pepper Steak recipe on All Recipes and it was a snap to make. I did purchase steak strips to save time and I added the bell peppers towards the end of the cooking time so they would remain slightly crunchy vs. mushy. I served it over wide egg noodles. Both Anthony and Alex gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up! You could also serve it over rice or ramin noodles.
