How to cut a Bell Pepper

Here’s a fast, organized way to slice a bell pepper.

1 First, cut off the top end. You can use the flesh around the stem, so save it to prep at the end.

2 Next cut off the bottom. Save it to slice or dice at the end, too.

3 Split the pepper from top to bottom with a single cut.

4 Pull out and discard the core and seeds.

5 Now you’re left with relatively flat sections. You can slice them to any thickness, in any direction. For stir-frys, slice the pieces into long thin strips.
