Today I’m going to teach you how to cook one of my personal favorite dishes, pepper steak. The name is a lie, because there are actually no peppers in it, only celery. My mom made this for us when I was growing up, but since I live in a family of picky eaters she was afraid that no one would eat it with pepper in there, so used celery instead.

This is an incredibly simple dish, so doesn’t require anything more than:


  • Prep: ~30 mins.
  • Cook: 30 mins. - 1 hr.
  • Serves: 2

  • 1 pound of beef round steak
  • celery
  • 1 white onion
  • 3 bullion cubes
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • soy sauce
  • vegetable oil
  • rice

Step 1

To start off, slice your steak and cut your vegetables in to pan-cookable pieces. Add vegetable oil to your pan. You want just enough to cover the bottom.


Step 2

Go ahead and add the beef to the hot oil first, being careful not to splatter any grease. Half cook the beef, and then toss in the veggies. Cook on high, getting the red out of the meat.

Step 4

Next you want to add about two cups of water for a broth. Bring this to a gentle boil. Now, add two or three bullion cubes, a good amount of soy sauce, probably about an ounce, and then a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat on the pepper steak, cover, and simmer. At some point directly before this you should have started preparing some rice. Since I lack all forms of rice cooker, I use an old fashioned sauce pan. To make the rice add two cups of water, bring to boil, add a cup of rice, stir things around for a second, cover with a lid, and reduce to low heat. Now while the rice cooks and the steak simmers we wait about 15-20 minutes.
