Pepper Fry beef

I learnt to make what I would like to call as pepper fry beef (for the lack of a better name :P) today. This recipe is solely dedicated to Aysha. She's been asking me for the recipe since ages now!! When she visited Bangalore with her hubby and family, my helper prepared this and turned out really good. So I finally got around today to learn how it's made and oh my it turned out soo soo yummy, alhumdulillah. Now without further delay here is the recipe :)
