*Tips: it is easier to cut the steak into strips if it is partially frozen- or use kitchen shears to cut into strips when thawed.

You can cut your celery and onion into larger chucks if you like more texture.

Bell peppers.. use all the colors for a pretty dish Keep in mind though that each color offers a variation in taste.

Green: a bit more tart and earthy.
Yellow: very mild and slightly sweet
Red: Sweeter stronger flavor than yellow*.
