Recipe: Pepper Steak Meatballs

This recipe is one from my Mother. She has made this recipe for as long as I can remember. It’s a little different twist on Pepper Steak…

It’s very easy and quick… it also can be made ahead and reheated…. serve this with white rice.


You can use red, green and yellow peppers for color... it makes a terrific presentation.... also red and yellow peppers have a milder flavor that guests may prefer.

It makes a great buffet item…. It’s very tasty and different… goes well with other foods and is pretty inexpensive to make.

This recipe serves 6… so if you are serving this on a buffet… I would double the recipe…. but I would suggest you make it in two batches so everything fits easily in the skillet.

Recipe: Pepper Steak Meatballs

All you need:

1 ½ lbs. lean ground beef
½ cup milk
¾ cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
¼ cup butter or margarine
3 green peppers, seeded and sliced
2 medium onions, sliced
1 package (8 oz.) fresh mushrooms, sliced
3 small plum (Roma) tomatoes, quartered
1 can (10 oz.) condensed beef broth
1/3 cup water
¼ cup Burgundy wine
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ cup cold water

All you need to do:

In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, milk, bread crumbs, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Shape the meat into small balls about 1 ½ inches in diameter.

Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet on medium high heat.

Brown the meatballs in the butter. (Just brown them, they will continue to cook throughout the recipe)

Add the green peppers, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes; sauté for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the condensed beef broth, 1/3 cup water, wine and soy sauce.

Simmer covered for 5 to 8 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.

Remove the meatballs to a serving dish.

Add the cornstarch to a small measuring cup of ¼ cup cold water. Blend into a smooth paste.

Slowly add the cornstarch mixture into the skillet… stirring constantly until the sauce thickens and becomes clear.

Pour the sauce over the meatballs and serve with white rice.
