All you need to cut a bell pepper is a cutting board, a knife, and a bell pepper. That’s it! Let’s get started.
You will need a sharp knife and a cutting board.
Before you begin, gather the supplies you’ll need: a sharp knife and a cutting board. A dull knife will make it more difficult to cut the peppers and could result in an injury. If you don’t have a cutting board, you can use a plate or any other flat surface that is not porous.
If you are using a wooden cutting board, be sure to wash it with soap and water before using it for food preparation. This will help to remove any bacteria that may be on the surface.
Rinse the bell pepper under cool water. Cut off the stem end of the pepper with a sharp knife. Slice the pepper in half from stem to bottom. Lay each pepper half cut-side down on the cutting board.
Cut off the top of the pepper where the stem is attached.
Using a sharp knife, cut off the top of the pepper where the stem is attached. Then, cut the pepper in half from top to bottom. If you want, you can also cut each half of the pepper in half.
Now that the stem is removed, it’s time to cut the bell pepper into quarters. Start by cutting the pepper in half, thenTurn the pepper so that the two flat sides are facing down on the cutting board. Slice the pepper in half again, then cut each half into two equal quarters. Now you have four manageable pieces to work with.
Cut the pepper in half lengthwise.
Cut the pepper in half lengthwise, then cut each half into thin strips.
Now that the top and seeds are removed, it’s time to cut the bell pepper into thin strips. Start by cutting the pepper in half length-wise. If you want to cut the pepper into smaller pieces, you can cut each half of the pepper in half. Otherwise, leave the pepper in halves. Place the pepper halves flat on the cutting board, skin side down. Slice the peppers into thin strips, about 1/4-inch thick.
Cut each half of the pepper into thin strips.
To make thin strips, start by cutting off the top of the pepper, then slice the pepper in half from top to bottom. Next, cut each half of the pepper into thin strips. You can make the strips as thick or thin as you like, but if you want them to be uniform, it’s best to use a mandoline slicer.
Peel the stem off the top of the bell pepper. If you are having trouble getting the stem off, you can cut it off with a knife. Be careful not to cut too much of the stem off, or the bell pepper will fall apart.
Cut the strips into small pieces.
Cut the strips into small pieces. Once all the strips are cut, take the knife and make thin slices length-wise. Be sure to hold the pepper steady with your non-cutting hand as you slice.
