Heat a large non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray over med-hi heat. Combine flour through steak, tossing to coat. Add beef mixture to pan; saute' 3 min. Add bell pepper and remaining ingredients to pan; cook and cover 7 min. or till the peppers are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice, if desired.

And for a side dish to go along...

1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 tsp chopped minced garlic
2 cups fresh sweet corn (about 4 ears)
2 med. zucchini (1 lb total), quartered lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro

Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook green onions, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 min. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 min. Add corn, zucchini, cumin, salt and pepper and cook stirring occasionally, until zucchini is tender, 4 to 6 min. Stir in cilantro and season with salt and pepper.

I don't know where the top recipe is from. The side dish is from Gourmet, September 2004, p. 186. All were yummy!
