Pepper Beef Rice Skillet


Tasty skillet-fried rice with peas, corn, and peppery beef is doused with an easy homemade garlic sauce to make this quick weeknight dinner.


  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca starch
  • 1 (2.2 ounce) package beef top sirloin, thinly sliced and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • ½ cup frozen petite peas
  • ½ cup canned corn, drained
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Combine water, soy sauce, garlic, honey, and tapioca starch in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and let cool.
  2. Pour cooled sauce into a blender; pulse a few times to puree the garlic.
  3. Mix beef with salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, and onion powder in a bowl.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef; cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper, rice, peas, corn, and butter. Cook and stir until beef is no longer pink and mixture is heated through, 7 to 10 minutes. Serve with the garlic sauce.
