If you’re like me, and I would like to think a lot of people, you love a good weeknight meal that’s quick, delicious, and comes together in about 30 minutes. I mean, who wouldn’t right?! That’s exactly what this 30 Minute Pepper Steak is. Juicy strips of steak with green bell peppers in a light beef sauce served over white rice. Do I have your attention yet?

I remember growing up with pepper steak as a pretty regular meal in our house. Either it was my mom or my grandma (aka Grammie) who would make it. It was such a simple dish, and heck, maybe that’s why I loved it so much as a kid. 

I won’t lie, but I’m pretty sure that this year is the first time I ever actually tried to make it myself. And, as I find myself in my third trimester now, the desire to want to spend hours in the kitchen at night (especially on a weeknight) are fading fast. But, I do still love cooking and being in the kitchen, so that’s why this 30 minute version of pepper steak was totally up my alley. Now if only I felt the same about doing the dishes. Heeeyyy, hubby… 😉😉
