I have made this for years.  It came from the first Lion House recipe book I ever purchased.  The page is written on and stained from using it so much.  I have made a few changes over the years and it is still a favorite.

Stir-Fried Beef and Peppers

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 pound lean beef cut in paper-thin strips ( beef is easier to cut if partially frozen)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 5 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms thickly sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion quartered
  • 2 small bell peppers or 1 red and 1 green
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can beef broth


  • Combine meat strips with soy sauce, lemon juice, cornstarch, sugar and ginger. Let stand while preparing vegetables.
  • Heat oil in large frying pan or Dutch oven. Stir-fry mushrooms, onions, green peppers and salt until tender crisp ( about 5 minutes). Lift vegetables from the fat reserve.
  • Stir-fry meat mixture in the hot oil until it loses its pink color ( a minute or two). Add vegetables and beef broth and stir until hot.
  • Serve with cooked rice.
