Beef with Red and Yellow Bell Peppers

  • ACTIVE: 40 MIN
  1. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  2. 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  4. 1 teaspoon sugar
  5. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  7. 1 pound beef eye of round, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise 1/16 inch thick
  8. 1 cup chicken stock
  9. 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  10. 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  11. 1 red onion, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  12. 2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 2-inch squares
  13. 1 red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch squares
  14. 1 teaspoon Chinese chili-garlic paste
  15. 1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  16. 1/4 cup coarsely chopped basil
  1. In a bowl, mix the garlic, soy sauce, sherry, sugar, pepper and 1 teaspoon of the oil. Add the meat and coat well. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours or refrigerate overnight.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the stock, oyster sauce and cornstarch. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil. Add half of the meat and cook over high heat until browned on 1 side, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with 1/2 tablespoon of the oil and the remaining meat.
  3. Add the onion and the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Stir the stock mixture, then pour it into the skillet and simmer over moderate heat, stirring, until it starts to thicken, about 2 minutes. Return the meat to the skillet and simmer until heated through. Remove from the heat. Stir in the chili-garlic paste, sesame oil and basil and serve
