1 BellPeppers

This isn't Bell Peppers and Beef.

Bell peppers and beef is a common meal across the Solar System in the English dubbed anime.

On the Bebop, Jet Black often made the meal, however, because there was often a lack of funds, he had to omit the more expensive meat ingredient. He still called it "Bell peppers and beef."[1]

In the original Japanese anime, the dish is called in Chinjao Rosu (チンジャオロース or 青椒肉絲), which is based on a Chinese dish (Qing jiao rou si). It contains beef or pork, green bell peppers, bamboo shoots, and ginger. In the first episode, Spike mentions that meat (Japanese: niku, にくor 肉) is missing while the English subtitles changed the translation to "beef."
