My Girl, Paula: Pepper Steak

This recipe can be found on page 77 of "The Lady & Sons, Too!" Cookbook. It was good, not my favorite of Paula's recipes, but good. We made the dish Thursday over at my mom's. My parents both loved it. My son decided it was okay and wrapped it up in tortillas. Not a bad idea.! We ate it over rice.
My mom bought cube steaks. She was worried the round steak wouldn't get tender.

Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality. They were taken with my camera.
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 lbs round steak, trimmed of fat and cut in strips
1 cup water
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2 medium green bell peppers, cut into strips
2 T soy sauce
2-3 tsp. sugar
1 T cornstarch
2 tomatoes, cut into wedges
Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot. Add the meat and brown for 5 minutes. Stir in the water, onion, garlic, salt and ginger. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. After 10 minutes, add the peppers.
Stir together the soy sauce, sugar and cornstarch. Pour this into the pot and stir until the liquid thickens. Place tomato wedges on top of the meat and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 mintues longer.
Serve over rice.
Serves 4-6.

That looks good! I didn't make it because I had too many leftovers from the weekend. Thanks for taking over as host for the "My Girl, Paula!" group :)

This was very good. We are pepper steak fans; at least hubby is. I like it. He loves it.
