Beef Strips With Bell Peppers

Beef Strips With Bell Peppers

I originally made this recipe with shrimp and today I tried it with beef, but chicken breast would be just as good.  You can use whatever kind of peppers you have in the fridge, either green, yellow, red or a combination. Serve with white rice or basmati rice.

Really tasty and easy for a week night dinner!  Try it!

Use Fresh Ingredients


  • 1 pound top sirloin cut into 1 1/2 inches long strips  (or about 500 g)
  • 2 bell peppers cut into strips 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 large onion cut into strips
  • 4 green onions, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 2  tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 cups canned tomato sauce
  • 2 + 1 tablespoons Greek extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • salt & pepper to taste


In a large non-stick skillet heat 2 tablespoons oil,  add bell peppers and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add onion and cook for another 3 minutes. Continue stirring.

Add green onion and cook until peppers, onions and green onions are tender.

Remove from skillet and keep aside.

In the same skillet add 1 tablespoon olive oil, if needed.

Add beef, salt & pepper, and cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Add garlic.

Add tomato paste and cook for 1 minute.

Return peppers/onions/green onions into the skillet.

Add tomato sauce, sugar, salt & pepper if needed, and cook for about 20 minutes or until all ingredients are well combined.
