Places In The Home Pepper Steak Recipe

This recipe for Pepper Steak is a house favorite.  A pepper steak recipe is nothing new, but a time saving one does become a cook’s friend.  I like this version because it is both a time saver and crowd pleaser.  I’ll take a shortcut in my recipes if taste is not compromised.  This recipe is a prime example- I use powder options (garlic,onion) in lieu of dicing, mincing, and slicing.  Chopped onions and garlic in a jar is an excellent option,  but when the freezer/fridge is void of these grab the powders.  Let me share the recipe with you.
