  • 2 pounds top sirloin beef roast, sliced into 1/4 inch slices across the grain
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups pearl onions, peeled
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 packet Club House mushroom gravy seasoning mix, 42 grams
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions for garnish, optional
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish, optional


  • Add the sliced beef, along with the black pepper and soy sauce to a large bowl. Toss well to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour to marinate.
  • Next, in a large skillet or Dutch oven, add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Over medium heat, and in a single layer, sear the beef on each side until slightly brown - about two minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside. Do this in batches, adding more oil as needed until all the beef has been cooked.
  • Add the onions to the skillet and saute for 5 minutes.
  • Add the peppers and saute for another 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and saute for one more minute.
  • In the meantime, whisk together the Club House mushroom gravy seasoning mix with one cup of water.
  • Pour the mixture over the peppers and onions and cook until the sauce has thickened.
  • Toss the beef back into the skillet and toss to combine with the gravy and the vegetables.
  • Add a lid and turn off the heat. Allow the beef to sit for 5 minutes.
  • Plate and garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. (Optional)
  • Suggestion: Serve with your favourite cooked rice.
