Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

by 247tasty

A coarsely crushed star of black peppercorns in this weekend dish changes my view of this recipe, which is mainly a staple in the pantry. Don’t be afraid to add the whole tablespoon of pepper as it enhances the beef ‘s riches and gives a slightly spicy flavor to the platter. Season the beef with a quick rub of garlic, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and cornstarch; the cornstarch helps tenderize the beef and then gives the sauce a silky texture. You can marinate the beef up to 8 hours ahead and cook it when ready. If there are any leftovers left, tuck them in a crunchy baguette or roll them into a wrap.

This recipe for a zesty dinner is ready in minutes, and super-flexible. Substitute something that catches your eye from vegetables-new or frozen. Chicken and tofu can substitute the beef in this recipe. I began to prepare this dish when I saw a lot of cabbages in my pantry. At first, I hesitated to try this one out, but doing so was the best decision I’ve ever made. The green leaves and beef produce healthy and good food.

(1/2) small head cabbage, shredded
(1) red bell pepper, cut into strips
