I usually find that most Beef w/ Peppers recipes fall short- too much saltyness going on from soy sauce and a general lack of…tang? This is my own concoction and it comes out WONDERFUL! sweet and savory and yum. FULL RECIPE ON THE BOTTOM.
Cut all this good stuff up first:
once your beef cut of choice is thinly sliced, mix your oyster sauce, hot chili oil, sesame oil, rice vinegar, water and cornstarch together in a bowl.
Throw your meat slices in and fully coat them in the sauce. Let it marinate in the fridge, we let ours go an hour.
Heat oil of your choice (I recommend canola or peanut) and sear the meat in a super hot pan for one minute. Avoid stirring. After the minute is up, turn the meat over and sear for another minute.
add a bit more oil and allow pan to return to medium heat. Add ginger, onion, garlic and peppers and let that cook for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring often.
Throw meat with any additional sauce back into the pan, reduce heat to low and add your tomato. (I like adding the tomato at the because they stay firm instead of shriveling up into empty skins)
Serve over rice. Bam.
