Mixed Pepper Steak

Here one way to feed the family in a flash, this stir fried honey beef steak is definitely a crowd-pleaser. Beef is rich in Vitamins and Minerals, not to mention that is also contains some of the good fats. This quick fry up is best served with rice or pasta, but hey don't let me stop you from teaming it up with anything that tickles your fancy. Who knew adding a tablespoon or two of honey could make a huge difference to the flavour, my mouth is watering slightly as I'm writing this. Considering we had this as part of our dinner on Valentines day, I'm strongly considering breaking out my Wok once again for an evening of fun.
