- Add measured oil to pan then add onion and cook, stirring frequently until onion softens. Add capsicums. Stir-fry until softened.
- Cut steak crossways in 5mm-thin slices. Add to pan (along with any juices) and stir-fry for 1-2 more minutes. Season to taste. Transfer mixture to a serving dish. Sprinkle with coriander.
