If you tried my Black Pepper Chicken stir fry and liked it then your sure to like this one too.

There are a few different techniques to making it with beef, which I will teach you below.

First off the beef needs to be first tenderized first and foremost. 

I learned to do this recipe through much trial and error and found the type of beef that works best is “flank steak” however you could use tenderloin or new york strip as well.

Then you will want to thinly slice the beef against the grain and allow it to marinade in baking soda for a minimum of 20 minutes to tenderizes it.

You can throw in practically any type of vegetable, I sometimes will use just peppers, other times I will use snow peas.

I hope you give it a try and if you do I would love to know what you think, just let me know in the comments below.

I like to serve this Black Pepper Beef with some cooked jasmine rice on the side, and will use a mini rice cooker to cook the rice.

Just set it and it will be ready when the dish is completed. I hope you give it a try there really isn’t much too it!
