New Meal Prep Video! This Pepper Steak recipe is a must try, simple and delicious. In less than an hour, you’ll have 10 meals cooked, portioned, packaged, and ready to go for the week. Eat these meals for lunch, dinner, or whenever you typically eat throughout the day. Having these healthy and tasty meals ready to go, it makes sticking to/reaching your fitness goals that much easier. It’s all about consistency, day after day. I know it’s not always easy, I have fallen of the healthy eating train more than I would like over the past few months but always feel much better when I find my way back to the consistency of healthy meals ready to go 😊
The goal is to get back to more consistent meal prep videos, like the good ole days. The goal is a video weekly, but it may not always be a meal prep video. As I have started to enjoy doing non-sponsored Taste Test reviews and sharing how the products actually taste or work. But that is for a different post…
I really hope you all enjoy this meal prep video and recipe! And as always, the more feedback and comments the better! I enjoy reading them and many times I will get new recipe ideas or other cooking tips I can use based on people’s comments.

Healthy Food Swaps: Based on your fitness goals
Can I make it more low-carb? Of course!
The simplest way to do this would be to cut out the rice and just go vegetable crazy lol. But seriously, you could easily double up on the veggies and cut the rice out completely. Below are some additional veggies I think would go really well with this recipe, see below:
- Snap/Snow Peas
- White Onion
- Honestly, so many more. Whatever veggies you want to add, go for it!
If you are still wanting that rice consistency you could look at just swapping the rice for Cauliflower Rice.
That is the only rice alternative product I have really tried, but here is an article with some other options you could potentially sub in for the rice to keep the consistency but not all the carbs.
What about some other good Beef/Steak choices you could go with?
And obviously, keep in mind, each cut will have a different nutritional value, some could significantly alter the calories in your meals, for better or worse. Below I included some alternative cuts of steak that you could try with this recipe. I have made this recipe with a few different ones, and my biggest piece of advice is to not overcook your steak, no matter the cut you go with. If you do, you will be at the table all day and night trying to chew it. This is especially true for the leaner cuts of steak; fattier steaks tend to be a little more forgiving if you overcook them.
Leaner Cuts of Beef/Steak
- Sirloin Tip Side Steak
- Top Round Steak
- Eye of Round Steak
- Bottom Round Steak
- Top Sirloin Steak
Fattier Cuts of Beef/Steak
- Skirt or Flank Steak
- Chuck Steak
- New York Strip Steak
Let’s wrap things up!
That’s all I have for this week’s meal prep and post. As I continue to do more of these, the format, style, and layout may change slightly but again the main goal for me is to just keep things simple and be consistent. I will often try to wait till I think it’s perfect before posting but just ends up having the reverse effect of doing all this work and then never posting lol. I’m sure some people relating can relate, and that’s why I am posting more… Because it’s not perfect, there are many things I want to change about this post and even the video, but I am happy with it and very happy to be getting back into the meal prep world. I’ve been out of the game way to long.
