1 green bell pepper, cut into 1” cubes

How to make 15-Minute Pepper Steak Stir-Fry
Step 1: Place the garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, Sriracha, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
Step 2: Heat a tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the diced bell peppers to the skillet and cook for about a minute or two until tender. When done, transfer the bell peppers to a plate and set them aside.
Step 3: Adjust the heat to high. And in the same skillet, sear the flank steak in a single layer, adjusting the heat to medium-high until both sides of the steak are no longer pink.
Step 4: To the skillet with the steak, return the peppers and add in the sauce. Allow the sauce to simmer for about a minute or two until it begins to thicken.
Step 5: Before serving, garnish with some chopped cilantro and sesame seeds. Enjoy the Pepper Steak Stir-Fry over rice, rice noodles, or cauliflower rice.
