Pepper Steak

Pepper steak - the perfect fall food!  Well, anytime food really, but I was really thinking about it for the last few days.  I can say I have never actually made this myself, but we ate it ALL THE TIME as a family. 

SO!  I got a hankering yesterday and whipped up a batch up delicious pepper steak.   Dandar family recipe below. 

Pepper Steak for 4

3 # Round steak, cut in strips                         1 garlic clove minced or 1 tsp powder
2 Medium onions, chopped                            2 green or red peppers in strips
1 can beef broth                                              ½ tsp salt
            or 2 bouillon cubes in 16 oz water     
3 TBS soy sauce                                              2 TBS cornstarch                               
2 cups rice                                                       ¼ cup cold water

Brown meat and season with salt and pepper.
Add  8 oz broth, save the other half for later.

Add water as needed, do not let it go dry!

When meat is tender:

Start cooking rice, then
