Black Pepper Beef

This is one of those recipes that leave me speechless. I honestly don’t think I have the words to do this recipe justice. I know someone out there will supply the words after making this.

For now, I can happily state that this is my best recipe ever!


  • 400g of beef, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • Handful of green beans, cleaned
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 3 atarodo (habanero), chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of black pepper pods
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of white pepper
  • 2 stock cubes
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch


Grind the black pepper into a fine powder.

Place beef into a bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of the black pepper, 1 stock cube, white pepper, and corn starch. Mix well, and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Place a wok over medium-high heat. Add oil. After 1 minute, add onions, atarodo, ginger, and garlic. Stir once, and add the green beans.

Sauteé for 4 minutes, then make a space in the middle of the wok. Add the beef, and leave to sear for 2 minutes, before stirring.

Add salt, black pepper and stock cube. Stir fry for 5 minutes, then add green pepper. Stir, and add 1 cup of water.

Simmer for 2 minutes, then serve, enjoy, and come back and LEAVE A COMMENT…



Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.
