Silk Route Spice Company


Looking for a quick and healthy black pepper recipe? Why not try our black pepper beef dinner recipe! One of our ultimate cupboard must haves is Whole Black Peppercorn.

Not only is it a staple item, it also has a number of benefits... Black pepper contains piperine, which is a plant compound that has strong antioxidant properties. Moreover, piperine also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory potential. Another reason why pepper is a great addition to any savory dish is because it helps boost nutrient absorption. Now you can give yourself a pat on the back every time you add pepper to your dishes - not only does it add a unique flavour it has a multitude of health benefits alongside it.


  • 2 grinds Whole Black Peppercorn
  • 350g beef tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon potato starch
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion cut into 1/2 inch squares
  • 100g bell pepper (1/2 red, 1/2 green)
  • 2 large garlic cloves chopped


  • To begin, put the black peppercorns in a mortar and use a pestle to crack the peppercorns coarsely.
  • In a bowl, whisk the oyster sauce, wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, and most of the black pepper (saving a little to garnish).
  • Add the potato starch and mix that in until there are no lumps left.
  • Stir the beef in, to coat evenly and let it marinate while you prepare the vegetables.
  • Once all the prep is done, heat a frying pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add the vegetable oil, and then use tongs to add the beef in a single layer.
  • Try to leave as much of the marinade in the bowl as possible. Fry the beef on one side until golden brown, and then flip each piece and fry the second side until browned.
  • Dump the onions, bell pepper, and garlic into the pan and turn the heat to high. Stir-fry, tossing the contents of the pan periodically to ensure everything cooks evenly.
  • When the onions become translucent, add the remaining marinade and toss everything together until the black pepper beef is shiny and evenly coated with sauce.
  • Serve with rice and garnish with the remaining black pepper (to taste).

Serve and enjoy!
