AMAZING tasting Chinese Pepper Beef Cubes – this easy to make Chinese dish is tasty and will have your family begging for it! Serve beef and vegetables over white rice for a healthy authentic Chinese meal!
Do you have a favorite Chinese dish? I’m a big fan of Chinese soups (like salted pork and cabbage), Shrimp Chop Suey and I’m always down for Lo Mein. One thing I always love in my dishes is a ton of vegetables covered in that delicious Chinese sauce they always smoother them in. It doesn’t matter if it’s peppers, broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts or something else, I can’t say no to a yummy vegetable.
Right now being Winter I am craving fresh vegetables. I am missing the green pepper overload from the garden. I can’t wait to pick broccoli in the Spring. Thankfully we still have enough carrots left from Fall so I have those to survive on. Over the weekend it was freezing (literally). The wind was harsh, my knees were shaking and my gloves didn’t feel like they were doing much of anything. One thing I craved when I got home was a warm fresh meal, something that would take me out of the Winter blues. That’s how this Chinese Pepper Beef Cubes dinner was created.
In this dish the beef cubes and vegetables are going to be the perfect combination with the sauce. Served over a bowl of hot rice (or noodles) with a egg roll on the side (of course!) this might become your new dinner favorite!
I love serving this dish alongside some vegetable egg rolls too!
