  • 3/4 pound  flank steak, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon  minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons  dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon  cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon  black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons  plus 1 teaspoon peanut or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups  red and yellow bell pepper strips
  • 1 cup  thinly sliced onion
  • 2 teaspoons  chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 cup  chopped cilantro
  • 8 6 inches  flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup  plain nonfat Greek yogurt or reduced-fat sour cream (optional)


1. Cut steak along the grain into 2-inch-thick strips, then cut each strip across the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

2. In a medium bowl, combine steak, garlic, 1 tablespoon sherry, cornstarch, soy sauce and black pepper. Stir in 1 teaspoon oil.

3. Heat a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil, peppers and onion; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until peppers begin to wilt. Transfer to a plate.

4. Add remaining oil, then steak in a single layer. Cook steak undisturbed 1 minute. Add chili powder; stir-fry 15 seconds or until just combined. Add pepper-and onion mixture, salt and remaining sherry; stir-fry 1 minute or until beef is just cooked through. Stir in cilantro.

5. Serve with warmed tortillas and top with yogurt or sour cream if desired.

the second amount of oil should be amount of peppers 2 cups and the 1 teaspoon is for the Sherry. (I dont use the sherry I use Worcestershire sauce, lime juice works well also.
