Oven Depot Hacks: Beef Pepper Lunch

Introducing our Oven Depot hacks: A series where we experiment with the Ooni oven & recreate our favorite dishes!

This week we tried to make Sizzling Beef Pepper Rice reminiscent of weekends spent eating Pepper Lunch by the food court. We used the Ooni Koda 12 & the Ooni Cast Iron Skillet, the best combination for retaining high heat & achieving those perfectly crisp yet tender beef strips! 🔥🔥
