Substitutions

Keep in mind that any substitutions will change the nutritional information for this recipe. 

Feel free to use a low sodium soy sauce, dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, or even coconut aminos for this pepper steak stir-fry.

You could also swap out the powdered ginger that the recipe card calls for with fresh ginger or use green bell peppers if you prefer.

To make this meal even more filling, add some cauliflower rice or if you aren’t following a low-carb diet, add brown rice or white rice to the hot pan.

Be sure to add the steamed rice to the sauce ingredients 1-2 minutes before adding the thin slices of beef.

You may want to double the sauce ingredients if you are adding more than a small amount. You may also want to add some corn starch to thicken the sauce. 

Alternatively, you can add a tablespoon of olive oil, vegetable oil, or peanut oil and a dash of Worcestershire sauce, chicken broth or beef broth to the pepper stir fry creating a new brown sauce.

Start with a tablespoon of oil at a time, after each addition, stir the ingredients to gauge if they need more moisture. You could also add a splash of water in place of a tablespoon oil but your rice will not reach a nice golden brown without the ingredients above. 

For a bold flavor, experiment with Shaoxing wine, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, and rice vinegar. To spice things up sprinkle on some red pepper flakes, white pepper, and black pepper. 

In a hot wok or large skillet, heat up some fresh ingredients on medium-high heat like green peppers, green onion, and baby corn to add some variety to this meal.

Sprinkle sesame seeds in a single layer on top for a nice presentation.
