Bright, colorful and delicious, that’s how I would describe the most simple and healthy 10 minutes bell pepper steak recipe. This one should be on your must-cook list.

This is one of my favorite’s weeknight dinner recipes. Especially for days where I don’t have the time and energy to spend an hour in the kitchen, with preparing, cooking and cleaning. But I don’t want to order take out. I just want a healthy nourishing dish for me and my family.
The kids love this dish. It’s colorful, they can eat it easily by themselves and it's very delicious. Kids love simple good-looking meals. So, this is a perfect one.


  • Vegetarian:

    Obviously there is beef in this dish, but it is easily changeable. You can replace the steak with

    seitan or tofu

  • Vegan:

    Instead of the steak, use

    seitan or tofu

    . Replace honey with

    agave syrup

  • Bell pepper.

    Green, red, yellow, orange... any color you prefer. I love using all of them. It makes the dish look amazing and obviously tastes good too. I think it’s a must to add the green bell pepper, because beef and green bell pepper are meant for each other.
  • Steak.

    Choose your favorite steak (Rump, flap, flat, strip, rib eye, Denver steak…)
  • Ginger.

    I recommend you to use fresh ginger, because it gives the dish a fresh taste and also because of the health benefits.
  • Onion.

    I always use red onions for this delicious dish, but yellow onion works well too.
  • Garlic.

    One of the main ingredients. It is key for the strong flavor. But don’t worry, it will not have this strong garlic taste, as everything harmonizes perfectly together.
  • Soy sauce.

    As I have already written, use high quality soy sauce.
  • Honey.

    Just a few spoons for the perfect sweet touch.
  • Cilantro.

    Again, one key ingredient for the flavorful dish. As we don’t use many spices, we need to choose the right ingredients which will give a very strong flavorful taste to the dish.
  • Salt.

    I love to use sea salt for steak dishes, but any other salt works too.
  • Pepper.

    Freshly grated black and red pepper are so good. But you can use just black pepper.

Simple white is perfect for this dish. It’s a very colorful dish, so the white rice will complement the dish even more. If you don’t like rice, you can have mashed potato, homemade fries, glass noodles, cous-cous, oven potato… the list could go on and on.
You can even make an amazing sandwich with this dish. If so, try to use a crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside baguette like a French baguette.
If you would like to not keep it simple with the sides, then my moro de habichuela negra (Dominican rice and beans recipe) is the perfect choice for the most simple and healthy 10 minutes bell pepper steak.

any tips?

  • This is a 10 minutes recipe, but if you have the time prepare the steak in the morning or even the night before. While the prepared beef rests, it has enough time absorbing the flavor of the onion, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper. It will bring your meal to the next level. You will still need 2 minutes preparing it.
  • As the pepper will lose some water the sauce is very runny. I don’t have any problem with that, but if you would like to thicken up the sauce, mix 2 tbsp flour with the soy sauce before adding it to the steak.
