I made pepper beef stir and it was delicous. The recipe is from my new favourite youtuber ” Spice Eats”, I came across her channel few days ago and am hooked, watched her videos & saved some that I’d like to give a try. It’s a simple recipe, the only different thing is that I used meat (+ extra spices) and she used chicken. I’ll add her video link below.
