  • 3 tbsp canola oil , divided
  • 1 large sweet onion , sliced thinly
  • 1 lb flank steak , sliced thinly across the grain)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 3 shallots , sliced thinly
  • 2 red peppers , sliced thinly
  • 2 orange peppers , sliced thinly
  • 2 yellow peppers , sliced thinly
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp Tamari sauce , use a thicker sauce if you can find it
  1. In a large skillet heat up 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Toss in the onions and a dash of salt. Cook onions for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. You want them cooked so they are translucent but not caramelized. Transfer them to a plate. Set aside.
  2. Now in the same skillet add another tablespoon of oil and bring to a high heat. Cook the beef for about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned perfectly. It helps to cook them in smaller batches so you don't overcrowd the pan. You'll get a better sear on them meat. Continue until all the meat is cooked, you can place them on a plate and set aside.
  3. In the same pan add the last 1 tablespoon of oil and bring to a medium-high heat. Drop in the peppers and shallots and cook until the peppers soften up. It should take about 4 to 6 minutes.
  4. Now toss the onions, and beef back in the pan, add the tamari sauce and cook for about 3 minutes, mixing everything thoroughly.
  5. This can be served solo, or with rice.
  6. Serve with a big old peppery smile!
Recipe Notes

Use a really thick Tamari sauce for this. If you can't find a thick one you'll have to make a slurry to thicken it. You can do that by combining a bit of water with the sauce and adding about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of corn starch. Put in a jar and shake. Then pour that into the stir fry at the end of the cooking process and let it cook for a few minutes to thicken.
