  • Cut onions, in half lengthwise, then slice lengthwise into thin strips.  Seed and cut red and green peppers into thin strips.  Set aside.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over high heat; stir fry beef and garlic for about 2 minutes or until meat is browned but still pink inside.  Transfer to plate.
