  • 1 lb beef sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together ketchup, rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, cornstarch, and water to make the sweet and sour sauce. Set aside.

  2. Season the beef slices with salt and pepper.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.
