Gluten-free Chinese pepper steak in a frying pan served with a bowl of white rice

Who knew a delicious Chinese takeout can be this easy to make and healthy? Our pepper steak is a gluten-free version of the popular Chinese dish. Quickly stir fry beef and pepper strips and serve with a rice. If you are not following a gluten free diet, you can just use regular soy sauce. For a spicier version, use regular peppers instead of bell peppers.
