1 lb of beef, chopped
1 onions, chopped
2 green peppers, chopped
1/2 cup bottled teryaki sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
2 tbsp oil
Put beef in a bowl and pour teryaki sauce over it. Toss to coat. Leave to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add green peppers and onions, and cook, stirring periodically, for 5 minutes, or until peppers cooked through. Add salt to taste and remove the peppers and onions from the frying pans into a clean bowl and set aside.
When the beef is done marinating, heat another 1 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add minced garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add the beef and stir. Cook, stirring periodically, for 5 minutes or until the beef is no longer pink. Add cooked green peppers and onions and stir. Sprinkle with black pepper and red pepper and stir. Add salt to taste if necessary.
